Spacewoman of the Underground

May 16 - May 18, 2019

Christine Zeurcher attempts to dig a hole to the other side of the planet while wearing a handmade spacesuit!

Adjacent to her dig is a Ham radio where she receives transmissions from all parts of the globe. Viewers are invited to investigate her findings and tune into the radio transmissions to experience the voice of the unknown. The Dig celebrates the human urge to explore while interrogating the instinct to exploit.
