“Takeoff” Cassandra C. Jones

Take Off (2012) is a Snap Motion Re-Animation constructed from photographs pulled solely from the online public domain archives of NASA. The photos I selected represent all of the successful Space Shuttle launches from 1981 to 2011. What interested me about these images was how much I remember each launch from all the media coverage but how little I know about the specific tasks each Shuttle carried out. Not only has space travel been a striking achievement of human ingenuity but the resulting imagery from each mission take off has a rich potency in and of itself.   – CCJ
