    I was the candidate to be the first artist in space. True or false. Delusional or fact. The test here is to research and find out for real. unlike so many of our posters who knee jerk and then flame each other into oblivion. Or, get so bad they end up on an ignore list.

    All posts welcome.

    Thank you all in advance,

    Robert

    Moon and Stars Align for Performance Artist (washingtonpost.com)

    I do know Laurie Anderson was the first in something:

    Performance artist Laurie Anderson thought the phone call was a prank.

    How would you like to be NASA's artist-in-residence?


    and I also knew about the NASA art program:

    NASA began its art program in 1963 but never before had it tapped a resident artist, nor had it pushed the aesthetic envelope so boldly by choosing a performer whose large-scale theatrical productions blended "Star Trek" and Melville. Anderson is no Faith Hill.

    who first proposed an artist in space, and what makes a proposal credible? Maybe Jules Vern proposed sending his art director in space? No way to possibly prove the statement true, but many possibilities to express statement as ridiculous without a narrower focus. Such a broad and open ended statement is the kind made here all the time.

    and then who are you? who is anyone here on an anonymous message board?

    ciao
    :cool:

    Well, so far we're not doing any good. Somebody, very close on target, got it on the "NASA-Artist, but no one ever went to the source, NASA itself, and it would have been a quick search and one click, and there it is, right n the NASA site itself.

    The point; if we are going to discuss topics of our lives, thre is a probabilty they are correct. Its called discernment. But its all been fun.

    Now, "I was a candidate to be the first artist in space". Wonder how this will go.

    Thank you for the indulgence.

    Interesting. A search of the employee directory on www.nasa.gov produces the following (see attached image). NONE of those are you.

    Oh my, its here. Hey, look at this: Right up your alley:

    But wait, at the NASA art site, how come no one has challenged the rest of the claim? The "NASA-Smithsonian" part.

    Shitfuck: Come on big art boy, prove that your work goes to the Smithsonian.

    Me: Ok.

    NASA Art at the Smithsonian

    Any questions? And over and over, I have NEVER worked for NASA as a civil servant. I am and always have been a contractor. Why? Better money and you can run your own employment and pick and choose your own assignments. But wait, at the NASA art site, how come no one has challenged the rest of the claim? The "NASA-Smithsonian" part.

    Shitfuck: Come on big art boy, prove that your work goes to the Smithsonian.

    Me: Ok.

    NASA Art at the Smithsonian

    Any questions?

    Beat ya too it. Such a loser.
