PORTUGUESE CONTEMPORARY CULTURE AND CREATIVITY
Voyager 03 is an installation/exhibition about Portuguese creativity. It is a design project. It is also an action of communication. The prime contents of Voyager 03 are its concept and design. Or, in other words, the conception of the structure as an operation and the way in which this is turned into a three-dimensional object. It can therefore be said that the first design piece presented by Voyager 03 is the installation itself. The installation itself as a future container of other pieces.
The contents transported by Voyager 03 are the result of direct invitations addressed to more than 40 Portuguese creators. They represent an intense and profound work of collaboration between the people to whom the challenge was made and those who issued the challenge. It was designed to be self-transportable, travelling around European roads, parking itself and spreading over the public space of each city in which it is presented.
Its compact construction and minimal space have given rise to exhibitions that intermingle with situations created by artists and designers. The overall soundtrack is distributed around the inside and outside of the installation, underlining the unexpected uses and multidisciplinary crossovers of its contents.
Voyager 03 introduces the city of Lisbon into the international circuits of creativity and contributes to an effective renewal of the image of recent Portuguese culture.
