The age of commercial spaceflight is here, and the possible abandonment of our home looms nearer with each trek.Recycling programs remain an inefficient facade by big plastic to convince us to continue consumption while avoiding the problem and only making matters worse. We can do better.

A vast, empty nether - at times containing gasses, solids, plasma here and there. Then there’s us; floating in the vast and expanding unknown. Humans have relied on buildings for shelter for millenia and while we get increasingly clever with our descriptions of these and for the value they hold (whether culturally or through capital) we rely on the same archaic methods for their construction, entangling ourselves with analogous practices across the globe. It is known that buildings account for a large share in the process of extraction and trade of resources extracted from the home planet, producing byproducts at almost every step of the way. From the fuel bringing the materials into the jobsite, to the displacement of dirt excavated for a foundation,and the creation of laboral issues created in a different part of the world for the shiny, durable plastic cladding shaped by tens to hundreds of hands and embodied travel from its extraction in texas, the trek it goes through in a ten inch pipe across territories, into the foundry of a chemical plant where it eventually finds itself in a container bound for China where it will encounter more artificial landscapes and will be transformed into your next amazon purchase, wrapped and ready to go at the expense of a worker forced to relieve themselves into plastic bottles so your order arrives on time.

But where to next?
