Space Ice Cream


Zoe Meagher

Freeze-dried ‘ice cream’ was a space-age failure: unpopular with astronauts, and only ever taken on one NASA mission (Apollo 7). Through the lonely faux-glamour of late-night TV shopping, ‘Space Ice Cream’ pays loving tribute to the disappointments and detritus that accompany technological advancement.

Zoe is a Melbourne-based artist whose mish-mash style of performance and audio reflects her love of retro-kitsch pop culture and technology. Past projects include performance as the Ghost of Computers Past and an audio tour of an abandoned space museum.

Sweet bland Neopolitan icecream - the junkfood to fill the void of a lonely extended roadtrip into the deep Unknown.
