At first glance, the BASS Ship looks like your standard 30 foot high space ship, but don’t be deceived by appearances. A team of artists and engineers who found a set of mysterious blueprints, decided to follow the instructions to build this massive electrical machine. The end result is a device that appears to hold the secret to communicating with an extraterrestrial culture. Help crack the code that makes this strange beast light up and beam messages to space.
The BASS Ship – which stands for Beama Applied Sciences Sector Ship – is the first project to emerge from Beakerhead's Big Bang Residency Program, funded by the Remarkable Experience Accelerator (a brilliant collaboration of Calgary Arts Development and Calgary Hotel Association) and supported by a partnership with the Banff Centre. Made possible with support from one of Beakerhead’s founding sponsors, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta.
