View the artworks of Psyche Inspired, a program that brings undergraduate students from any discipline or major together to share the excitement, innovation, and scientific and engineering content of NASA’s Psyche mission with the public in new ways through artistic and creative works.

Psyche is both the name of an asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter — and the name of a NASA space mission to visit that asteroid, led by Arizona State University. The mission was chosen by NASA on Jan. 4, 2017 as one of two missions for the agency’s Discovery Program, a series of relatively low-cost missions to solar system targets. The Psyche spacecraft is targeted to launch in summer 2022 and travel to the asteroid using solar-electric (low-thrust) propulsion, arriving in 2026, following a Mars flyby and gravity-assist in 2023. After arrival, the mission plan calls for 21 months spent at the asteroid, mapping it and studying its properties.

Psyche Inspired was piloted at ASU during the 2017-2018 academic year. The works from the 2017–2018 Psyche Inspired cohort are collected in a downloadable book that tells the story of Psyche through musical scores, sculptures, painting, 3D models, photography, acrylic art, needlepoint, stop-motion films and mixed media.

Maja Kuzmanovic and Nik Gaffney of FoAM traveled the desert in two years of site visits with ASU’s D.A.R.E. team collecting artifacts and sounds. From these experiences, they have created a desert sounds vinyl album and series of accompanying images for the salon. Further books, maps and images are supplied by the Hayden Library and its archives.

Directly following the Attunement to the Desert lectures, enjoy this reception and launch of the Dust and Shadow: An Acoustic Ecology Salon in Hayden Library, including the celebration of the release of the desert sounds vinyl album and accompanying reader.

Appetizers and beverages will be served.
