Dear Tom Cruise and NASA:
I am an artist. Never mind which kind of artist, for it is such an onerous thing to have to deem oneself this or that. I would like to make a proposal to you both.…My proposal verges on the simple. I would like to shoot Mr. Cruise and a (sexless) 5-year-old into outer space. They will be contained within a capsule (a word that needn’t be treated with orthodoxy) that NASA will have to approve, if not design. They will be launched into a sector of space, the coordinates of which are consummately unimportant.” —Darren Bader, James Earl Scones.
