Full Description

The Weightless Sculpture Project started in 1985 with the concept "A Line in Outer Space, Visible from earth with the naked eye, At clear nights. A first animation was made with the Digistar Planetarium Computer in Omniversum The Hague and exhibited in the Municipal Museum of The Hague. When the Internet with the WWW started, I developed the Weightless Sculpture Project website as a world wide mezzanine in between Earth Reality, Virtual Reality and the Physical Outer Space. The idea behind the Weightless Sculpture Web Project is caught in the statement "Earth is done". As an artist I am working in cyberspace dedicated to the ultimate weightlessness reality of outer space. The last is the most mondial and physical mass experience we realize today. WEIGHTLESS SCULPTURE exists of a physical part with a shape and a virtual part for telematic communication with a publicly accessible database. WEIGHTLESS SCULPTURE is orbiting in cyberspace waiting for its physical extension. The WSP database [under permanent construction] contains recorded activities related to the project.
