"It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small"
- Neil Armstrong 🚀🌌

Welcome to the Hertz Chamber!

Part of ESA’s technical heart in the Netherlands, the metal-walled ‘Hybrid European Radio Frequency and Antenna Test Zone’ chamber is shut off from all external influences.

Its internal walls are studded with radio-absorbing ‘anechoic’ foam pyramids, allowing radio-frequency testing without any distorting reflections. In addition, this cladding also absorbs sound – making Hertz an eerily quiet place to work.

Impact
210 × 297 mm
Paper, ink and lemon juice, heat
Limited edition print by Aoife van Linden Tol with impact by Aoife van Linden Tol

Designed for the Make Your Mark participatory event which was held on Tuesday 16th of May in the Winter Garden at ESTEC. The project explores the concept of 'making a mark' in the context of the historical impact of scientific work, of physical cosmic impacts the Universe and how the significance of such events continue reveal themselves over time.

The print was designed using the United Nations Treaties and Principles on Outer Space. The form resembles the imagery of the surface of outer space bodies using a patchwork of multiple photographs. Personnel and guests from ESTEC were invited to 'make their mark' on one of the prints with a meteoroid soaked in lemon juice. After the prints dry the participants blast the print with a heat gun to reveal the design created by their unique impact.

I used the first page of each section of the Treaty which sets the intention behind the individual principles which follow. I especially fascinated with the language whereby each sentience starts with italic words such as believing, recognizing, affirming, desiring, recalling, wishing, inspired. This was a positive contrast to the kind of language I was expecting such as must, do, don't, can, can't, adhere, conform. #esa #europeanspaceagency #estec #sciart #bomb #circle #outerspacetreaty #makeyourmark #impact #participatoryart #print #limitededition

My favourite phrase to come out off all my discussions and brainstorm sessions with scientists at the European Space Agency. Danger Dust! P.S. I'll be back! #dangerdust #illbeback #cantgetridofmethateasily #esa #estec

Another little space nugget. This guy helped us learn about microbes in space, among many other things.

Declaration
by Aoife van Linden Tol
700 x 700 mm
Paper, nails, lemon juice, heat

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a powerful attempt to define, promote, and ensure the core intention behind human behaviour towards other humans. It is one of the most important documents which sets the standard for which governing nations and individuals should aim towards. It also sets an important guideline for when to act – in support of its principles or against its violations.

From the first article, which if sentiment be adhered to would arguably be the only one needed, the intention is set and all other articles go on to define in what sense humans are 'free' and 'equal', what 'dignities' or 'rights' must be upheld in order to be deemed to be acting in the 'spirit of brotherhood'

The impacts made with the lemon juice aimed to represent a strong spark at the beginning, with the first idea and principle of Article 1, then expanding to create larger impacts as the ideas grew more defined with each subsequent article. Finally the smaller repercussions spreading to all corners and permeating all aspects of life.

Although, the declaration is something to admire greatly, what struck me was this sense that the document is a responsive one. Each of these articles is a result of having to defend rights which have somewhere at sometime been denied. The idea that this code of practice has had to be hammered in to human consciousness and governmental practice, dictated the method of constructing the work by hammering the articles to the frame. I can't help wondering what a declaration for human behaviour would look like if we did not start from a place of violence. This work was made as part of Make Your Mark project at The European Space Agency which involved hosting a workshop and live participatory event at ESTEC. #esa #estec #europeanspaceagency #universaldeclarationofhumanrights #humanrights #sciart #burnt #lemon #art #impact #history #future
