This spring, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will present two exhibitions, in celebration of colour: “Fugues in Color” and “Simon Hantaï-the Centenary Exhibition”.
Fugues in Color 4 May to 29 August 2022 Galleries 8 to 10 Exhibition curators Ludovic Delalande, Nathalie Ogé and Claire Staebler, with Claudia Buizza (Artistic Direction of the Fondation) dedicate the entire top floor of the Fondation, to large presentation “Fugues in Color” (“La Couleur en fugue") exploring the diverse variations of colour, and extend into the architecture of the Frank Gehry-designed building.
Historic array of Drapes crafted by Sam Gilliam (United States, 1933), in the late 1960s, are shown here for the first time in France. These coloured canvases, which hang freely in space and form the foundations of his MIRANDA KERR visual technique, marked a major turning point in the history of American abstract art. Juxtaposed with these are an array of Misshaped Canvas by Steven Parrino (United States, 1958-2005). Works of Niele Toroni (Switzerland/France, 1937), thanks to considerable loans from public and private national and international institutions, will also be on display with works by Megan Rooney (Canada, 1985). Katharina Grosse (Germany, 1961) also featured at Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia as part of the 59th edition of the Biennale internationale d’art contemporain from 22 April to 27 November 2022, will execute an unprecedented work commissioned by Fondation Louis Vuitton, which will be on display beginning in September.

This impressive panorama of the artist’s work spans three floors of the Frank Gehry building, covering a total of approximately 29,063 ft2. For the first time, a largely unprecedented workshop collection of Hantaï’s works will be shown. A total of fifteen historical pieces are included in this collection, all of which are emblematic of his approach during the period of 1957-1965. The artist donated most of these works to public institutions, while others are held in large private collections in France or overseas. Hantaï’s works are shown alongside the works of other major artists that had an influence on the artist, including Henri Matisse and Jackson Pollock, and Michel Parmentier and Daniel Buren, who were Hantaï’s peers in the 1960s scene at the Cité des Fleurs. A French artist of Hungarian origin, who came to Paris in 1948 was recognised as early as 1953 by André Breton, who dedicated his first personal Parisian exhibition to him at the Surrealist gallery “A l’Etoile scellée”. On 19 May 2022, his three sons, internationally renowned musicians, will give an unparalleled concert consecrated to Couperin, Leclair, Rameau, see more on FondationLouisVuitton.fr.
Hauser & Wirth Zurich:
'Seventy Years of
The Second Sex' Limmatstrasse, 24 March - 21 May 2022
Interview with Dr. Sophie Berrebi Dr. Sophie Berrebi curated the exhibition that features artists whose works span the second half of the twentieth century until the present, which relate to Simone de Beauvoir’s moral approach proposed in "The Second Sex" (1949), either by appropriating the author's ideas, "complicating them or underlining the blind spots in Beauvoir’s thinking," says Dr. Berrebi.
social change, like French women's right to vote in 1944? Nevertheless, men reclaimed their role of a "bread-winner" by the end of the decade, in the post-war welfare society.
Ethics of Ambiguity The exhibition explores artworks from the perspective of moral discourse, founded on the existential ethics of French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. The setting for Simone de Beauvoir’s existential ethics is the post-war era of the 1940s, which was characterised by great uncertainty. This era brought up the question of our mere human existence. Not only were people irresolute about what tomorrow would bring, but they were also questioning whether they had the right to hope for a tomorrow. This meant that society was lacking a course to adhere to in the question of how to continue living in such an unstructured era. And how should individuals interact in the society and relate to each other after
One can safely infer that Beauvoir’s ethics is strongly anti-paternalistic. Something that works in the exhibition also touch upon. Whatever an individual's happiness may turn out to be, it is not something that can be determined by someone else and imposed from the outside. The good of others is "an absolute end," Beauvoir states, "but we are not authorized to decide upon this end a priori." Yet, by postulating two levels of freedom, Beauvoir avoids the overly rigorous position that one may never intercede in the decisions of others. Transcendence can help women and other groups to shape their own futures and create possibilities if they are given the possibility to do this. But in order to achieve this, it is required of them to reach out for their legal rights, even if they are not given. In her book Beauvoir is concerned that women are subdued to positions which prevent them from taking part in history, by staying in the household and being subordinate, thus losing their subjectivity and individuality.
‘The Second Sex’ At the very centre of the conversation is the author's work, which inspired many to develop radical new artworks and expressions. The artist's contribution is based on how we define and describe women in art. The exhibition in Zurich puts on view the precise manner in which artists have approached the use of terms such as woman, female, and womanhood; through art, they seek to emancipate women from social construction and propose new ways of thinking that are non-objective; and the relationship between art, society, and the individual.
The award-winning author knows these artists intimately and personally, "Dr, Zoe Leonard I wrote about in my first book, and Annaik Lou Pitteloud is someone with whom I have daily discussions nowadays about feminism, art and politics. So together, these artists are part of my life, which means that they are part of discovering the world. They constitute an aesthetic and intellectual horizon."

This relapse of mindset contributed to the development of the author’s views in "The Ethics of Ambiguity" (1947). Emphasising Kantian moral philosophy, Beauvoir stresses the importance of human freedom in her existential ethics, holding that all of us are responsible for each other and every being, but the moral obligation is context-sensitive. "Beyond that, to give some pointers, Lorna Simpson and Roni Horn address issues that intersect feminism, a reflec-tion on gender or race that Beauvoir does not address, especially not in her book. The works of Brătescu, Hesse and Pitteoud reflect on the woman as artist, which is the subject of a long passage at the end of volume 2 of ‘The Second Sex,’" notes Dr. Berrebi.
The concepts used by Beauvoir are ontological freedom and understanding the body's potential or lack thereof in the lived context becomes crucial. "Bourgeois' theme of the ‘Femme Maison’, a woman whose head is replaced by a house, is a simple and powerful image of a woman blinded by her domestic environment," says Dr. Berrebi.

Victoria Victoria Silvstedt Silvstedt Monaco-based Victoria Silvstedt is a Global Ambassador of Base of Sweden and dedicated resident in Monte-Carlo where she actively supports charity work and finds time for numerous art, cinema and philanthropy projects.
Moralmoda Magazine Cover-story | 18
Victoria talks to Moralmoda about living in Monaco and how her obligations on the both sides of the Atlantic make Monaco an ideal base. “I’ve been a Monaco resident for 10 years now, and I always spend most of the spring and summer here.”
It seems that travel restrictions didn't interfere with Victoria's travel habits or the way that she visits family and friends. Victoria travels to Sweden, on frequent family visits, where she owns a home, and she also spends time in her Miami home during the winter. During the winter holidays she finds time to unwind on the beach or yacht; “I’m always in St. Bart's—which is my favourite island,” she adds. Environment and charity work When discussing subjects that are important to her, Victoria highlights the NGOs and charities that she supports in Monaco and the Cote d'Azur. “Supporting charities is vital to me, especially because I'm so fortunate to live in Monaco,” and she adds, “I also support the environment through the Prince Albert Foundation, and I’m also one of the Ambassadors of "The Perfect World" foundation and also the Global Environmental Movement Association (GEMA) to bring awareness to keep our oceans and environment clean.” Victoria is also an Ambassador for Les Anges de Gardiens (an NGO that collects food and essentials for the homeless in Nice).

Victoria is a co-owner and Global Brand Ambassador for a number of international firms, including the award-winning Swedish start-up Base of Sweden, which is run entirely by women. We asked Victoria why is it essential for her to be a part of businesses that empower women and protect the environment and animals “I'm honoured to be a part of Base of Sweden, an all-female beauty foundation company. We don't test on animals, and all of our products are organic and natural.” Her beauty secret or must-have beauty product this summer is a good vegan SPF crème; “I use the Base of Sweden vegan primer followed by the makeup foundation with SPF 35 in the color tone Golden!” She adds another sustainable luxury brand to her top list; “I'm so excited about the collaboration with the sustainable fashion label Marli Dresses, where we created capsule collection ‘the Wild Life’ Dresses (ed. this page skirt and top by @marlidresses). My inspiration for this collection comes from nature and it is easy to wear on the beach, and during the day or night! It’s great to have such a multifunctional collection!” Monaco Summer Season Victoria Silvstedt's name is on numerous invitation letters to red carpet and Royal events in and around the Principality. She plans to attend the upcoming season's highlight events as guest and as a host too; “The upcoming exciting events are the Film Festival and also the Monte Carlo Fashion Awards on the 24th May, where I’m cohosting the event. I also have the Amber Lounge Fashion Charity Gala on the 27th of May and June 3rd.”

Finally, for the Monaco summer season Victoria is hosting the Monaco Streaming Awards, “I’m so excited,” she admits, adding that she will attend the water bike challenge on June 5th, in support to the Princess Charlene Foundation, “I also love the Monte-Carlo TV Festival in June,” she adds. Venice Film Festival Victoria joins forces with courageous women, like Shirin Ebadi, a 2003 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. “I’m proud to be working as an associate producer on an upcoming documentary, Shirin Ebadi: “Until We Are Free”. It will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September with Kate Blanchett as part of the project,” Victoria unveils.
The Era of Digital Trunk Shows is Here! By Brenda Li Quadri Miami, the new digital capital of the USA, will be hosting the first digi-physical fine jewelry trunk show. On May 12th three international jewelry brands, the Miami-based brand Sazingg, L’Dezen from Hong Kong and POCHE Jewelry from Ukraine, will welcome their clients to an exclusive and immersive shopping experience at the Wynwood Studios. The trendy district, known for its entertainment and street artwork, has been chosen as the stage of this unique experience, made possible by Digital Twin. The Digital Twin is a marketplace founded by Miami-based twin sisters Adrianna and Natalie Soto-Wright, whose goal is to converge the emerging digital luxury industry with brands that are centered around one-of-a-kind art. They aim to make the crypto ecosystem accessible and equitable for artists and consumers. Their main belief is that NFTs can serve as the organic entry point into web3 by intertwining physical assets with their digital counterparts. Web3, the decentralized online new ecosystem based on the blockchain, will initiate engagement with consumers and give them the power to own and direct the brand they love by encouraging user-generated content and rewarding loyal followers with brand equity.

PIAGET’s SPIRIT for GOLD At Homo Faber 2022, the celebrated Swiss Maison displays its expertise and excellent savoir-faire in the treasformation of gold. Text by Adriano Davoli
or almost 150 years, Maison Piaget has been a passionate creator of unique timepieces and jewels that combine unsurpassed technique with surprising beauty and audacity. Since the 1950’s, the transformation of gold, a material that the Maison uses for the construction of watch cases, bracelets, engraving and high jewelry creations, Piaget has wanted to perfect his expertise in all the phases of gold processing and transformation. At Homo Faber 2022 along with other luxury brands of the Richemont Group, Piaget encourages, celebrates and revolutionizes craftsmanship and the concept of excellence, so perfectly interpreting the motto of the Venetian exhibition “Crafting a More Human Future”. At Homo Faber, Piaget has proposed its savoir-faire in the goldsmith field thanks to artisans who will demonstrate the art of engraving technique and the creations of gold chains. Vintage models of past magnificent collections were on display: my preferred one is a splendid “collier ruban” all made of supple gold fabric featuring the so iconic “Palace” workmanship, used since the 1960’s, consisting of

sculpting the metal with delicate grooves, all horizontally placed, obtaining an iridescent and luminous effect similar to tree bark. Fluid and very . tactile (1). Slightly asymmetrical, the two sections of the necklace are reunited at the centre thanks to a superb sunburst motif made of golden rays, turquoises and marquise-cut diamonds. A group of dangling gold chains detaching from the star are set with diamonds and turquoise boules, adding a splendid movement to the jewel once worn (2). All the happy mood of the Swinging Sixties is perfectly represented by this necklace. The piece, part of the 2014 “Extremely Piaget“ High Jewellery Collection, was expressly created for the “Biennale des Antiquaires”, held at the Grand Palais in Paris in the same year. As each artisan specialized in this very elegant technique has its own method of engraving the metal, only 3 the same hands can start and complete a watch bracelet or a complex jewel, in order to guarantee that the final piece is perfectly homogeneous regarding the final gold appearance, the type of reflections and iridescence on it. Another superb . vintage piece visitors had the chance to admire in Venice .
”All the good mood of the Swinging Sixties is present in this necklace.” was a large cuff-watch characterized by an airy gold chain bracelet, almost like a delicate lace, with the single gold elements interlocking one with the other, resulting in a light, very precious net. At its centre a slightly trapezoid dial has its base completed paved with diamonds, set with the refined technique of the "tapis neige", or snow carpet (3). The small diamonds, all of round cut and of minimal difference in size, are set one next to the other giving the optical impression of a fresh snow fall. Magic, almost a fairy-tale and extremely sophisticated, this jewel is a model created in 2012 for the then Collection "Couture Précieuse". A true innovator in the world of timepieces and refined jewels, Piaget strongly believes in creativity and artistic values. It is within the production of "Atéliers de l’Extraordinare" that the Maison’s master craftsmen continue to exploit the rare skills that have been preserved from generation to generation, to transform gold, rare gems or semiprecious stones in authentic works of art. .

SLIDING WONDERS Text by Adriano Davoli
The iconic Zip necklace is a concentrate of refined and absolute statement. h
tarting from the early 1930’s, thanks to Elsa Schiaparelli, the clever and useful zip arrives for the first time on the most irreverent and sensational Haute Couture outfits conceived by the histrionic couturière of Italian origin. At the same time, confirming once more the always existing connections between the Haute Joaillerie and the Haute Couture, Renée Puissant, daughter of the founders of Van Cleef & Arpels and its Creative Director between the two World Wars, decides, apparently at the suggestion of Wallis, the Duchess of Windsor, to create a jewel inspired by the zip, that can be opened and slid, adding an elegant tassel in gold threads on the slider, to make it more feminine and glamorous.
created by Van Cleef & Arpels ingenuity, executive prowess Bold and Very Chic.
After several and laborious technical phases already developed around 1938, when the idea was patented, the project stopped due to the Second World War, while the first model made of gold, diamonds and rubies saw the light in the Maison’s workshops only around 1950. A peculiar fact is that, although the highly controversial and sarcastic Duchess wore the Zip necklace on various occasions, despite her fabulous and vast jewelry collection she never owned one of her own. ‘ She has only, perhaps, inspired it. The jewel is subject to an elegant metamorphosis, a decidedly High Jewelry detail: the back section of the jewel is detachable and removable so that, once the tassel is pulled and the zip closed, the necklace becomes a refined bracelet, with the pompon on the side now free to sg

wing on the wrist with indisputable panache. Produced annually still today in a limited number of pieces due to the prohibitive costs and processing times, over the years the necklace and its tassel have been enriched with colours and metals, thanks to a wide choice of gems, semiprecious stones, pearls, enamels. Set in yellow, white or pink gold. Van Cleef & Arpels was present at the second edition of Homo Faber 2022, recently held in Venice at the Giorgio Cini Foundation, on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, inside the section “Genealogies of Ornament”. On display, some specimens of the Zip, including one of the first models ever created in rubies and diamonds, on yellow gold. The Maison also set up there a small workshop where two skilled craftsmen chosen among its famous “Mains d’Or” showed the public and visitors the technical drawings and structural parts of this ingenious jewel, so inextricably linked to Van Cleef & Arpels’ emblematic universe, such as the Serti Mysterieux, the Minaudière or the Cadenas.

One of the major environmental disasters affecting both the health of its ecosystems and our human health is the destruction of the ocean, particularly due to plastic pollution. The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has made this a priority field of work in order to address this issue. For many years, Repossi has been committed to helping the issues of its day, and as a result, it has sought to collaborate with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation for Ocean Preservation. During Monaco Ocean Week, the jeweler debuted its new Berbere Chromatic Ocean ring, the proceeds of which would be donated totally to the Foundation. Repossi has a lengthy history in Monaco, where it opened its first store in 1978, responded with enthusiasm to the Foundation's call.

"VERS LES JOYAUX DU TEMPS" urad proposes long dresses made for summer's events, yacht parties and variations of short cocktail dresses adorned with fine
chains and exquisite pendants for Murad's conquers. As he dresses new explorers inspired by courage to discover the joyful future and nearly pirate-like bravery. Maison Murad is one of the few to unveil a live couture show, where front row guests could admire up-close Murad's extravagant vision of maritime explorers. Many evening and cocktail looks are completed with matching monochromatic tricorn hats. The famous tricorne arose from the evolution of the broadbrimmed round hat worn by Spanish soldiers in the 17th century.
The hat style became a signature look at the royal court of King Louis XIV, who made it fashionable throughout Europe, both as civilian and military dress. Tricorn hats, now playfully combined with pleated organza couture looks, give the wearer a sense of regality and majesty, sending her to a world of secret hidden islands and restoring the opulence of the high seas era. Murad combines all this in a collection featuring a bouquet of pleated organza shirts with balloon sleeves, brocade waistcoats, midi skirts in sunray-pleated lamé fabric, cascades of tulle enveloping shorts, long dresses in silk chiffon, jumpsuits, and fitted jackets in crepe cady, as well as jewels incorporated into the textiles. As the show progresses, in the elated interior of the Westin Paris, the very modern collection silhouettes were perfectly fitted to a seemingly longerlegged cast than what you normally see on a Zuhair Murad couture catwalk—that was enhanced by asymmetric dresses, often with a dramatic thigh-high slit, as in looks like draped burgundy red and a strapless black velvet gown, with sculptural neckline ruffles, a bustle, two diamond clips, and a wraparound belt around an asymmetrical bodice.
NATOMY OF COUTURE Haute Couture show by Pierpaolo Piccioli for Maison Valentino questions the feminine figure as a socio-anthropological construct. Appreciating how the latter is more fluid, Piccioli adapts new cuts, savoirfaire, and mixes of materials to cut to the bone (no pun intended) to present a silhouette as unbiased as possible. Held at Valentino’s gilded salons on the Place Vendôme, the intimacy of the show (in contrast to past couture shows staged in Venice) allows guests to appreciate its message and silhouettes, which are made possible by the Haute Couture ateliers, where everything is unique and finely tailored to fit each individual. Acknowledging that there is no "one size fits all" ideal of beauty, silhouette, or age, while remaining faithful to the
Maison's aesthetics, Piccioli takes Valentino couture one step further and proposes a variety of looks that are not constrained by old social notions about women. His new silhouette is a tribute to feminine anatomy in all of its forms and variations. And the atelier brilliantly brings his vision to life in a variety of individually fitting styles, such as Lara Stone's sequin tiny dress under an oversized white embellished jacket, revealing her black stockings, and Kristen McMenamy's plunging black dress, which she wore to begin the show. Marie Sophie Wilson, who is still modeling in her 70s, wore a blousy couture Tshirt in wool crepe over a glittery fishtail skirt to underline the show's message. Piccioli's candid portrayal of woman necessitates a reassessment of the status quo of beauty ideals and underlines how the body is the starting and ending point of the whole process. By N. Ahmet

The 43.9 mm-diameter case, available in a choice of white or rose gold, houses Calibre 77F1 whose balance oscillates at a frequency of 4 Hz. Calibre 77F1 features a unique asset in the form of its patented additional modules for the dual time-zone mechanism, the second time-zone display, the programmable and reprogrammable mechanical memory wheel and the pointer-type day/night display. Part of this exceptional mechanism with its 55-hour power reserve can be admired through the sapphire caseback, elegantly adorned with Côtes de Genève.

The watch mechanism then calculates the time and date by means of a clever system of cams, hammers and an integrated differential. At that point, simply pressing the pusher is enough to travel from one end of the planet to the other, all without disturbing the accurate running of the watch. Visual escapism The dial offers a fascinating interpretation of the world on the wrist by a play on materials and superimposed plates. On the first gold base, the hand-guilloché waves lap gently against the shores of the continents.
The sunburst dial base attired in abyssal blue creates the impression of a permanent waltz of the wave motifs. This effect may also be due to the way in which the continents are depicted: an additional plate made of sapphire is composed of the metallised meridians and the continents are treated to horizontal satin brushing, while their coastlines are subtly outlined with a metallic turquoise border. Finally, an outer flange serves as a support for the various elements present on the dial. The result features brilliantly crafted dimensions and surfaces thanks to various treatments requiring several weeks of work. Essential details Making the dial legible while endowing each indication with a special aesthetic: for Breguet, luxury resides in the details – which is notably why the hours and minutes hands as well as the hourmarkers are adorned with luminescent material ensuring nocturnal legibility. The Sun and Moon positioned at 4 o’clock are hand-hammered to create a strongly realistic result. While the sun is a luminous rose gold, the moon is rhodium-plated and exudes a mysterious grey appearance. Displayed through a 12 o’clock aperture, the date features an additional retrograde hand ingeniously placed beneath the aperture dial and featuring a delicately rounded “U-shaped” tip serving to encircle the date of each passing day.

Nicole Stott A veteran NASA Astronaut, NASA Aquanaut, Author Artist and Founder of the Space for Art Foundation
Leading up to The AIM HIGHER GALA that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 16, humanity's future at the Moon on Artemis, with distinguished guests, Astronauts and scientists, we interviewed, Nicole Stott, veteran NASA Astronaut with two spaceflights and 104 days living and working in space as a crewmember on both the International Space Station (ISS) and the Space Shuttle. Stott describes herself as Astronaut~Artist~Earthling. We asked Stott to elaborate these seemingly, contradicting definitions. Nicole Stott: I am blessed by my time in space as an astronaut. I find myself now living vicariously through my friends while they’re experiencing their spaceflights, and you can ask me when I’m 90-years old if I’d like to fly in space again and the answer is absolutely yes, but I can also say that I love my time more on our home planet (which is also in space) as an Earthling. Even as an astronaut, while floating in space, the significance of it all was that all the work we’re doing there is ultimately all about improving life on Earth. That very special vantage point affords the opportunity to consider visually and emotionally who and where we all are together, on a planet, in space to acknowledge the reality of the interconnectivity of everyone and everything we share our planet with. This reality check we’re presented with from a windowed spaceship pretty much sums up our reality and it does so in a profound yet simple way by reminding us that we live
on a planet; that we are all Earthlings, and that the only border that matters is the thin blue line of atmosphere that blankets and protects us all. Sadly, while we all learned these things very early in life, this reality is not something we tend to carry forward with us and actively consider in our daily lives, but there’s not a day that goes by now when I don’t wake up with that reality in mind. I’m hopeful that by sharing my spaceflight experience and what we continue to do “off the Earth, for the Earth,” will help encourage everyone to acknowledge these three lessons of planet, Earthlings and thin blue line and to realize that the greatest role we have as Earthlings is to live our lives like crewmates, not passengers, of Spaceship Earth. Is this experience different through the eyes of an artist? I think the most important thing, whether traveling or standing in my own backyard, is to open up my heart and mind to the awe and wonder that surrounds me in that place. By doing so, I’m not only more able to reflect on the space flight experience, which also allows me to find new ways to discover and appreciate my terrestrial surroundings by considering the up close and personal perspective of the places I saw from the extraordinary vantage point on orbit, but I’m also able to think about it the other way around too. This happens a lot in both familiar and unfamiliar places on the planet. I’ll find myself wondering how all of the colors of the place where I have my feet on the ground would look from the distant view through my spaceship window; at what point do the details of the nature around me blur to the blend of colors we know Earth to be, and how should we be using this relationship between color and distance to better understand our relationship with the planet and all life we share our planet with. And as an artist, I like to try to capture the experience in as many ways as possible and then to create something of inspiration, like a painting, to represent not just what I was seeing but what I was feeling during the journey. What human resources does space travel require? I think the key is that we go into our spaceflight missions with an understanding of the greater good that can come from our missions and that our primary role is to be a good crewmate. Both physically and mentally you have to stay in good shape to be able to handle the rigors of training and the actual spaceflight (we’re motivated to do so because we want to fly in space, not only for the ‘adventure’ of it, but to be a part of the important work that’s going on there).
Physically, while in space, our bodies are impacted by the lack of gravity. Our brains and bodies are pretty amazing though; they figure out very quickly how to adapt to new and even extreme environments.
Dr. Sian Proctor Mission pilot for the Inspiration4 all-civilian orbital mission to space
On the plus side of our body and brain ‘figuring it out,’ you learn to move effortlessly while floating gracefully in three dimensions, but at the same time, on the not so good side, your brain and body also figure out that you don’t need much bone or muscle to do so…. So they stop wasting energy to maintain them. This leads to a significant acceleration of bone and muscle loss. That’s not a good thing if you have any plans to return back to Earth. We have a number of different countermeasures to this, primarily two hours of exercise a day on both aerobic and resistive exercise devices. (I actually came back in better shape than when I got to the space station, because who normally has two hours a day to exercise!).
How do you see the progress in space exploration?
For mental preparation, I think most astronauts are already in a place that positions them for doing good work in a very different environment and staying mentally well, too. The bulk of our training in one way or another is about how to work as a good team (a good crew). Along the way we are also challenged to identify and acknowledge our own strengths and weaknesses, which is key to working as a good crew (both on and off the planet).
More people can learn about space by watching the Netflix documentaries Countdown and Return to Space. They do a great job of capturing the excitement and future of human spaceflight.
Can you tell more about the Space for Art Foundation? We are uniting a planetary community of children through the awe and wonder of space exploration and the healing power of art. In short we are creating and implementing space-themed art therapy programs that bring children together from around the world through their artwork. Our work is focused on Space, Art, & Healing. We are creating large-scale space-themed art projects by building our crew of ‘Artonauts’— Children creating art together from hospitals, refugee centers, & schools around the world, and much more. In 2015, we started working on our first art spacesuit with children in one pediatric cancer center in Houston. Since then, we have worked on art spacesuits and electronic and interactive art pieces with children from every country on the planet. We are thankful for the continued generosity of our partners with ILC Dover Astrospace, ABlok Interactive Experiences, Club for the Future, and UNITY Movement Foundation, all working together to bring these projects to life. What legacy can our generation leave for the next? "Back to Earth" is meant as a call to action; as a way to look at a beautiful “off the Earth” example of how we can live like crewmates, not passengers, here on Spaceship Earth. I think our legacy can be to choose to live like a crew. By living like crewmates, we have the power to create a future for all life on Earth that’s as beautiful as it looks from space.
Dr. Proctor: Space exploration has been slowly progressing but now we are entering into a new space era that will enable a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive group of individuals to participate. It’s important to celebrate the beginning, but exciting to look toward the future of where we are going. The purpose of the Inspiration4 mission was to bring the first all-civilian crew to orbit and, in the process, raise200 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. How can more people learn about space?
Your motto is Space2inspire. Can you elaborate please? Space2inspire is all about getting individuals to recognize their unique, one-of-a-kind space. The space they inhabit and how they can use their unique space to inspire those within their reach and beyond. This is self-empowerment. Your goal with Space2inspire is to help create a Just, Equitable, Diverse, and Inclusive space for all of humanity. Can you tell us more about this? If space is truly for everyone then we need to begin to make decisions that reflect this. We need to make sure that access to space opens up to people from all different locations, backgrounds, gender, and race. We need to actively pursue this endeavor now because the foundation of humanity in space is being designed right now as we push to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. How do you set aside time to create space art? I am an afrofuturism artist so I like to create art through the lens of women of color in space. I combine my art with poetry, so that people can both be inspired by the art, but also gain deeper meaning with the words.

Lana Scolaro was born in London, United Kingdom, where she grew up attending guitar lessons from a very young age. This routine after school every day, turned music and writing music into her passion since high school. Lana took a leap of faith and relocated to New York, where she would later attend Parsons the New School for Design.

Parsons made a large impact in NYC as I was able to try out different options of design and technology. I was always into film animation and learned a lot using design software."
Spending summers on the island of Ibiza, Spain, surrounded by many well-known DJs in the world with whom she worked on music production using Ableton Live. In 2013, Lana attended Point Blank Music School in Ibiza, to increase her knowledge of music production, and she launches mixes on Soundcloud.
"My fashion style changes depending on my mood, if I choose to be elegant and chic and also comfortable at the same time, Marli Dresses are my go-to! They are so silky and don’t crease ever which makes them even easier to wear. If I’m going for a more low key vibe I wear more street style."
Lana has notched up some impressive gigs on both sides of the Atlantic & now gearing up for her debut UK club. While Lana sometimes finds playing in front of a huge crowd ‘a little nerveracking’ and travels around the world under intense pressure to perform well, Scolaro still feels that she has tapped into her life purpose as a music producer and performer. "My latest music release is my song “Kitty”," which she has signed with Sony and her label which she is signed to, Extensive music, that brings out her message with this song of female empowerment, "as i don’t believe it is acknowledged enough through music," she adds.
Her buzz inevitably followed, and she was later discovered by The Books DJ Agency in London and Splash Life Booking in LA which lead to several tour placements with hip hop artists Chanel West Coast, Lil Wayne and DJs such as Luciano and Bob Sinclair. From this point onwards, a strong partnership developed, this seemingly overnight success, also landing Lana her first production deal, with Extensive Music. Like many artists, her performing was put on hold recently, "It took a while to work on with Diztortion who I co-produced it with as there was difficulties being able to work in the studio together due to Covid." Lana’s musical influences are David August, Tale of Us and Solomun, to name a few.

An interview with
Michel Ghatan Photographer, London, UK
When photographing nature, the viewer receives the message more unfiltered. What is your primary intention with this series of photographs?
You have visited Africa as a photographer during the past decade. What developments struck you most and how has your approach changed over the time?
Traditionally, I have always taken portraits of animals in their state of being, while trying to establish a close communication between me and the subject. When you are dealing with wild animals everything is on their terms, not mine. It requires perfect preparation, understanding of nature and patience. Usually, time is on your side if you manage those elements. Measuring the distance between you and the animal whilst predicting his behaviour as well as what he is allowing you to do is a big part of what I do. With gorillas, the challenge is very different. On one hand the animal is the closest species to humans in terms of DNA but on the other you have only one hour a day with them. No matter how long the trek is. So, you are stuck between this feeling of seeing “someone” similar to you and racing against time. I think the result speaks for itself. Those images of mountain gorillas are a mirror to human behaviours.
It’s an interesting question. The years I started visiting Africa were right after a terrible drought that affected almost every country on the eastern side of the continent. Kenya for instance, lost a lot of elephants because of drought and poaching accelerated to unprecedented levels as a consequence. Those terrible years were followed by significant positive conservation efforts and the situation got much better to the point poaching got under control until Covid struck. Covid had a terrible impact over the world of course but in Africa it got even worse. I went multiple times to Kenya in 2020-2021 and the parks were completely empty. I felt it was my duty to support them as much as possible. Villagers with zero income facing a choice between starvation or poaching. Governments weren’t prepared for this. Unfortunately, 2022 seems to be another year of terrible drought. People’s resilience is constantly put at test even when doing the right thing is in their blood.

How do you intend to continue your work in Africa and promote awareness? Africa has given me the opportunity to express my artistic needs through photography and I feel embedded to protect it. I am planning to return early November this year to photograph elephant groups in desertic conditions. Currently, I am doing a partnership with Fauna and Flora International (FFI) to raise money for conservation programs by auctioning artworks that were presented during my latest exhibition in London: “From Kilimanjaro to The Virunga Mountains” at Alon Zakaim Fine Art www.alonzakaim.com.
