Artworks and a collage traveled to space on SpaceX and NASA’s Crew Dragon

Elon Musk’s company, founded in 2002, SpaceX and NASA sent Crew Dragon, a capsule powered by the Falcon 9, to remain on the International Space Station (EEI) for a few weeks. In addition to the incredible feat it represents, this project brought artworks to space.

Human and Kind pieces by Tristan Eaton

Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley are in charge of the successful mission that took place this past weekend. Additionally, they were entrusted with another mission. They brought three artworks that represent the essence of the human race to space.

Thus, there are two artworks by American artist Tristan Eaton entitled Human and Kind. The first consists of universally known symbols that allude to US flag, the Falcon 9, and monkeys; as well as other symbols that represent creation, science, and evolution.

Moreover, Kind represents love and peace, a hand, an equal sign, a dove; stars alluding to the American flag, a happy face, clouds, and other allegories that take up some basic concepts of humanity.

The third piece is a mosaic-collage piece with the faces of all the graduates of the class of 2020. Each portrait forms a spatial view of planet Earth, which brings us to the recurring theme of “humanity.” Furthermore, it’s a tribute to the efforts of all the students who managed to graduate.

In addition, you’ll be able to see each face on the collage up close on the SpaceX website. Finally, through his Twitter account, Eaton shared the process of creating the pieces, accompanying them with a message where he wished the astronauts good luck.
