Aphids Inc.

Forever Now is a curatorial project that responds to our cultural obsession with immortalising ourselves.

In the footsteps of the Golden Records sent into space in 1977 on the Voyager space probe, curators Willoh S. Weiland, Brian Ritchie, Jeff Khan and Thea Baumann worked with renowned jeweller Susan Cohn to create a contemporary golden record, curated from hundreds of international audio and video submissions.

Working for Aphids Inc, my role as producer included overseeing the call-out and commissioning process, supporting the curatorial team, delivering several live events including the spectacular launch party at MONAFOMA in January 2015, and coordinating a partnership with Deep Space Communications, broadcasting all the selected works into deep space.
