SPAC3: Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Third Paradise, worldwide symbol of “VITA”

A long journey began: on the 28th of July the symbol of the Third Paradise became the worldwide symbol of VITA, the third long-term mission of Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli, in collaboration with ASI (Italian Space Agency), ESA (European Space Agency), RAM radioartemobile and Cittadellarte – Pistoletto Foundation.

A project that aims to engage the whole world into communicating and sharing the work’s meaning and mission. Pictures by Paolo Nespoli will be made accessible to web users, through the «Space Three» AppSPAC3 – an easy-to-use application developed by ESA with RAM in collaboration with ASI and Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto – which is 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.

The images generated with this combination, once shared on the most common platforms (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) with the use of the #SPAC3 hashtag will be displayed in a large, interactive mosaic using the shape of the Third Paradise, allowing everybody in the world to take part to this unique, dynamic Social Artwork: have a look to the Social Artwork here
