Ad Inexplorata (Approaching the Unknown)
Ad Inexplorata (Approaching the Unknown) 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 (Approaching the Unknown) also includes the astronaut’s journals, scientific research, mission explication and Rosenberg’s own discourse of the narrative symbolism. Ad Inexplorata (Approaching the Unknown) is an introspective story about one man and his mission seeking the wonders of the universe.
