This project takes the form of a marketing portfolio featuring an ad campaign, a “Dear Future Martian” form letter, and a waiver and release of liability for the fictional corporation SpaceCo. The project responds to the recent rise of corporations like SpaceX, juxtaposing romantic popular notions of space travel with its more insidious corporate implications. Karna explains, “romanticizing space may be benign in a fictional setting, but as our technology becomes more advanced and space travel becomes increasingly privatized and available to the public, it has the potential to become problematic.”
