AllRightsReserved excited to share their new release KAWS:HOLIDAY SPACE in collaboration with KAWS, inviting all of us to escape with COMPANION and embark on a journey beyond our atmosphere. Reminisce of the iconic MTV Moonman back in 2013? Who knows, all we know is AllRightsReserved’s KAWS: HOLIDAY travels to space all set to land TODAY.
KAWS is always thinking about what sculpture can be. “So many projects have been cancelled this year. I wanted to create one that could be experienced safely from home. Because this year marks 20 years since I created COMPANION, I tried to find a way around all the restrictions and do something special. I felt so confined the past few months that creating a project like this has really given me a chance to escape.
COMPANION dons an astronaut suit and takes a sounding balloon 41.5 kilometers (136,296 feet) up into the Stratosphere. Marking COMPANION’s 20th anniversary, the adventure culminates in a 2-hour, zero-gravity walk-in uninhabited space and took about 8 hours from preparation for lift-off, departure to landing.
