If you could send a message out to the universe just to tell them our world was here, what would you say? What would you share?

Join Sandbox for an intimate aural and visual event celebrating NASA’s Voyager Golden Records. The Golden Record Project is part art installation, part performance, part interactive museum. It’s a search for connection, a hopeful call to other worlds, and a declaration that we are here.

In 1977, a NASA project led by astronomer Carl Sagan, and writer/producer Ann Druyan, launched time capsule discs they called Golden Records into deep space aboard two NASA Voyager satellites. President Jimmy Carter called them, “a present from a small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours.”

In Sandbox’s Golden Record Project, a multi-disciplinary collection of twin cities artists, along with our audiences, will explore the cultural, historical and current significance of the original Golden Records, and through this exploration, create a new record of our own.

How has our world changed? What would you send out today?
