Artists Statement

mixed media

Juan Jose Diaz Infante and the Mexican Space Collective built a satellite called Ulises 1. Inspired by and in response to Mexico’s drug war, Infante wanted to make his own reality and illustrate the idea that the future varies for different generations. The project involves launching the satellite into space, after which it will play an algorithmic opera, making the satellite a musical instrument.
