All Utopias Fell: a collaboration with Michael Oatman at MASS MoCA
This 102 x 50cm leaded stained glass panel is the translation of a collage by New York artist Michael Oatman into a window for an Airstream trailer.
Installed into the front window of the caravan, the stained glass was made as a gift to a fictitious 1970’s amateur astronaut who transformed the 30 foot long camper into a homemade satellite.
The Airstream, with it’s 39ft wing span and six photovoltaic panels, is part of Oatman’s permanent art installation "All Utopias Fell" that opened October 2010 at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Massachusetts.
