Mars

The first album I purchased over 30 years ago was:

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars …

This album and other well-known and beloved songs by Bowie, such as, Space oddity and Life on Mars, became central and significant in the soundtrack of my life, also because the connection with Mars had created an inexplicable identification with me, and much of what was echoed by Bowie’s songs, such as ‘spoke’ me too …

When the Israeli Mars Association was founded in Israel, which, among other projects, it has been building experimental Habitat in Ramon Crater at the end of the period I was living in Mitzpe Ramon, I chose to join it …

The day I arrived in London This past July, the exhibition opened: Moving to Mars –

A high quality, comprehensive and exciting exhibition that reveals everything about the Red Planet…

I found in the exhibition sights, sounds, concepts, images and objects that seem to come from similar sources of inspiration which I also create … For example, the concept

the Origin Matter, almost identical to my album name: Original Matter, the great use of the combination Space Observatory, reminiscent of the name of the music and mysticism space I created at Mitzpe Ramon: Observation Space, and the cooling suits of the future Martians which I would wear, if I could, on the next opportunity to appear on stag…

At the same time, it seems clear to all of us that if we do not work for being more elaborate and improved beings, no planet can save us from ourselves …
