The Raygun Gothic Rocket, by by Sean Orlando, Nathaniel Taylor, David Shulman, John Manyjohns.­

The Raygun Gothic Rocket is an immersive large-scale installation consisting of a 40' tall metal rocketship connected via walkway to a taller gantry launch tower with a well-defined lighted perimeter.­ Participants can interactively explore the rocket's three interior chambers accessible through the bottom of the rocket and the top of the rocket via the gantry.­ Aesthetically, the Rocketship explores the rococo retro-futurist future-rustic vernacular.­ Existing between yesterday's tomorrow and the future that never was.­.­.­ it is a critical kitsch somewhere between The Moons of Mongo and Manga Nouveau.­
