MotherShip : MotherVerse
From the walls of antiquity to the latest videogames, the concept of the MotherShip has always captured the fancy of the human imagination. Yet in popular culture, the inhabitants/controllers of these vessels have generally been male, whether we reference funk band Parliament/Funkadelic's legendary stage prop, or the resplendently lit ship in Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". MotherShip : MotherVerse is an Afrofuturistic origin story that presents a different perspective, a concept of the Mothership that is decidedly organic and female. Inspired by the art and theme of Artscape Baltimore's "The MotherShip Connection" anchor exhibit, newfuturism.com proudly presents....."MotherShip : MotherVerse".
