Artist Statement

"I think space is super cool. Growing up post moon landing, it seemed like there wasn't as much going on with space exploration. Sure, there was the launch of the Hubble telescope and the International Space Station, but it seemed like the golden age of space travel was over. In creating these patches, I wanted to pack them with nostalgia as a way to relive the missions they represent. I thought about how cool it would have been to actually work on these missions, to have been a part of the first orbiter and lander on Mars, or the first telecommunications satellite pioneering global communication. And so I made patches that I think people would have been stoked to wear - I hope you will be, too." - Peter Komierowski
