A little robot born on Mars. The introverted scientist who created it. A meta-fictional "found footage" re-telling of NASA's Mars Pathfinder mission as a story of outcast people and forgotten technology, about wondrous things struggling for attention i
A collaborative, feature-length omnibus movie about our solar system where every planet is represented by a short film, dealing with the science of outer space through creative and emotional storytelling and visual poetry.
Ad Inexplorata is a multimedia fictional story of an astronaut heading to Mars alone on a one-way mission. The piece exists in multiple forms: first as endurance-based performance art, then as live-action theater and finally as a film with an accompanying website. The project includes audience interaction at all stages. Almost entirely set within the grumbling hull of a spaceship traveling 60 million miles from Earth, Ad Inexplorata (“Toward the Unknown”) also includes the astronaut’s journals, scientific research, mission explication and Rosenberg’s own discourse of the narrative symbolism. Ad Inexplorata is an introspective story about one man and his mission seeking the wonders of the universe.
