Statement / Description

Pierre Comte belongs to the generation that directly experienced the shock of the conquest of Space (the Sputnik in 1957) and the incredible adventure of the Apollo Program that culminated in the 1969 moon landing. This emerging space activity progressively entered his area of interest until it finally became his central source of inspiration.

Comte sought to introduce an art component into this highly technological environment and attempted to become directly involved in astronautics with his ARSAT (art-satellites) scheme. Aesthetics remain his most important objective: artworks inspired by celestial mechanics, research for a visual communication between Earth and Space, architecture and objects in weightlessness, and so on.
