Welsh Space Campaign
The Welsh Space Campaign
The Welsh Space Campaign launches ordinary 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 provided material for the space suit.
I aim to reveal that Wales has the capacity to explore space, and to show that off-world culturalisation can be achieved through a collective communitarian effort.

This pressure system is built from parts found in most domestic heating systems. It works through providing the spacesuit with an atmospheric pressure of 3.5 pounds per square inch
