DON’T PANIC – Vitanje Space Call

AA Visiting School Slovenia as Architects

The DONT'T PANIC project is exploring and developing the potential of Vitanje to emphasize and build up on identity that this small town has gained with the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT). The ephemeral land art installation, created in collaboration between AA Visiting School participants and local community through an engineered social event is bringing both societies, of KSEVT and of Vitanje, together in an unique context of local knowledge, architecture, art and science. Starting from the fact that Vitanje’s Google Maps imagery database has not been updated since the building of KSEVT has been erected, the project takes the opportunity to send the message to the outer space (and the rest of the world) with a single snapshot of the Vitanje area from the sky. The cultural (scientific and fictional) relation between Herman Potočnik Noordung, Arthur C. Clarck and Douglas Adams is making the Don't Panic message perfect match for Vitanje and KSEVT.
