Biography

Microgravity Interdisciplinary Research (MIR) was founded in 2001 and is a consortium of European artists and organizations dedicated to a cultural engagement with space through flight. Using modified cargo aircraft based at Star City, the hub of the Russian space program, MIR conducts artistic experiments during parabolic flights. Dives and climbs produce a series of thirty-second intervals of near-zero gravity, simulating the weightlessness of space travel.
