Studio Molen, ‘ Lost in Traffic Space Glove’, 2016, Chamber

Studio Molen’s “Lost in Traffic Space Glove” is a wearable sculpture anticipating the moment of discovery of another livable planet in the universe. Made out of bronze, with a silver patina, the glove is both object and garment, likely the first glove to be made totally out of bronze.

Inspired by a Soviet Era space-suit glove that is also part of this exhibition, and channeling the optimism of the space exploration of the 1960s into the present day, the glove’s fingertips open up to allow for a first touch with the new planet, someday perhaps “a big touch for mankind.”
