New Geographies 11: Extraterrestrial
New GeographiesÂ 11:Â ExtraterrestrialÂ explores the historical and contemporary consequence ofÂ our planetary relationship with space. It interprets this duality through the conceptual lens ofÂ âextraterrestrial,âÂ whichÂ engages an entangledÂ zone of expanding practices in geography, landscape,Â and architecture,Â stretchingÂ EarthÂ to space, and conversely, space to Earth.
This issue questions the means through which spaceÂ isÂ forgedÂ asÂ a conditionÂ extraÂ to our ownÂ terra.Â Complicit within this imaginationÂ residesÂ aÂ deepÂ political and economic logic that serves to territorialize outer spaceÂ asÂ an exception to,Â and extension of, Earth. These critical processes are revealed as notÂ extraÂ at all, but rather distinctly ofÂ terra.
Through a series of written, photographic, and representationalÂ investigations,Â this edition ofÂ New Geographies builds on earlier studies of outer spaceÂ fromÂ science,Â technology andÂ society,Â as well as fromÂ the design disciplines,Â history,Â and critical geography. ItÂ reinforces the need for humanityâs changing relationship with outer space to be recorded, critiqued,Â and theorized from a breadth of academic traditionsÂ and projectedÂ withinÂ design discourse.
