Robots, Aliens and Rocketships


Robots, Aliens and Rocketships

In March, the Ole Rømer Observatory was invaded by alien, creative beings, which were invited by a secret club to join in an intergalactic afternoon of astronomical play.

You could make your own dimension twister, invent new star constellations or decide whether you are siding with aliens or robots and make a mask to fit. Simultaneously, collages made by artists from all over the planet were on show and the place was humming and shivering with an outlandish atmosphere.

Entry was free, but to join in the workshops it did cost you a few Nauts. You could exchange your Danish earthly Crowns into a secret club's Astronauts and Kosmonauts with the cosmic Bank-o-Mat.
