What better place to learn more about Beakerhead than in the presence of a 40-foot tall Raygun Gothic Rocketship? Even better, climb inside to explore the rocketship’s command centre.

ABOUT THE GOTHIC RAYGUN ROCKETSHIP:
The RAYGUN GOTHIC ROCKETSHIP is an immersive large-scale 40′ tall rocketship installation. Participants can interactively explore the rocket’s three interior chambers accessible through the bottom of the rocket and the top of the rocket via the gantry. The Raygun Gothic Rocketship is a rococo retro-futurist future-rustic vernacular between yesterday’s tomorrow and the future that never was, a critical kitsch somewhere between The Moons of Mongo & Manga Nouveau.
