Tatooine: Sci-Fi Becoming Reality

Sirius Arts Centre is delighted to present Tatooine: Sci-Fi Becoming Reality, an exhibition of work by New York-based artist George Bolster who grew up in Cobh. The works in the exhibition were developed during his multi-year residency at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI), and subsequent research with the Kepler Mission scientists from NASA Ames in Northern California. The exhibition, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, comprises of installation, tapestry and drawing, that explore the recently discovered planet Kepler 16b, a planet which theoretically could support life, and which is circumbinary (orbiting two suns of differing scales), something previously thought to be physically impossible.
