SPAC3: Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Third Paradise, worldwide symbol of “VITA” Comes To The UK

An Italian astronaut has kick started a mission that will enable science enthusiasts in the UK to be involved in, thanks to the collaboration with ASI (Italian Space Agency), ESA (European Space Agency), RAM radioartemobile and Cittadellarte – Pistoletto Foundation.

Paolo Nespoli’s third long term mission VITA has officially launched and will be represented by the famous symbol of the Third Paradise.

The project aims to engage the whole world into communicating and sharing the work’s meaning and mission and will allow UK web users to access pictures by Paolo Nespoli, through the «Space Three» App – SPAC3 – an easy-to-use application developed by ESA with RAM in collaboration with ASI and Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto – which will be available for IOS and Android smartphones.

Following the proposed themes, the users will have the possibility to combine the space photos by Mr Nespoli with the Earth images by the user within the symbol of the Third Paradise.

Once the images, generated with this combination, have been shared on the most common platforms (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) with the use of the #SPAC3 hashtag, they will then be displayed in a large, interactive mosaic (www.spac3.earth) using the shape of the Third Paradise, allowing everybody in the world to take part to this unique, dynamic Social Artwork.

Michelangelo Pistoletto said: “SPAC3 is a big artwork that connects all the people to the space mission. Science and technology goes on toward the Space with Third Paradise: in this way technology brings together the humanity in a big project of balance and harmony”.

The themes of intervention, inspired directly by United Nations global targets of action, will be indicated into the SPAC3 App, and displayed on 6 squared captions:

1) LIFE ON LAND
2) FOOD FOR ALL
3) LIFE BELOW WATER
4) GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING
5) CLIMATE ACTION
6) SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION

The App will ask you to pick one of 6 areas you wish to «have your voice and launch your message».
