Zen Gardens on Mars: A Conversation with Charles Lindsay

Posted by in category: space

From creating a Zen garden on Mars to conducting sound experiments in the massive wind tunnel at NASA Ames, artist-adventurer Charles Lindsay’s work questions our understanding of time and consciousness. Lindsay is the founder of the SETI Institute’s Artist in Residence program and is now a visiting professor at Kyoto University of Arts. His sculptures, sound installations, and immersive environments, built from salvaged aerospace and bio-tech equipment, invite us to ponder ideas about technology, eco-systems, and semiotics.
