The Welsh Space Campaign / Ymgyrch Gofod Cymru

The Welsh Space Campaign launches people into outer space, by finding a cosmic context for Welsh culture, skills and traditions.

A plumber has built a pressure system for the spacesuit, a traditional clog maker has made space clogs, and the last remaining wool mills in Wales have produced fabric for the exterior.

Through the Wesh Space Campaign, I wanted to challenge a nostalgic perception of heritage in Wales through exploring opportunities for Welsh traditions and heritage to look forwards.
