A series of personal interviews which examine the tension that exists between the astronaut himself and in contrast to society’s expectation from the image of his role.

I just floated around and looked at the earth and I said: “my job right now is just to be a human being, just be a person. And you know, I stopped being an astronaut, there I was a human being in space…” Rusty Scheickart, the first astronaut to test the moon suit in the vacuum of space. Dialog at Eight Km/Second is a collaboration between the astronaut and Dana Yahalomi (public movement), which will be taking place through several conversations the two will be holding throughout the training, while on board the Space Station and after his return to Earth.


The dialogs will form a performance space, which will enable the astronaut to showcase himself together with the artist and to echo the dissonance between the substance of the astronaut and his substance as a human, the tension between the human, everyday, intimate experience and the laboratorial, synthetic, documented living space.


The outputs of the conversations will be transformed into an audio work which addresses the listener as a potential agent that is faced with the dilemmas and conflicts arising from the conversations - can the chasms between the makeup of the human soul and the accelerating technological progress be bridged? the conflict between the desire to cross the boundary between the possible, the familiar - and gravitate onto the side of danger of losing everything which defines us as humans.
