Have you ever had your own “Pluto” ?

Pluto was first discovered in 1930 by Clyde W. Tombaugh when he was 24. It was such a big thing to discover the ninth planet of the solar system which was far away 5,700,000,000 km from Earth. Clyde thought ‘it is so far that he wouldn’t have a chance to see spacecraft that launched to Pluto in his life time.’

Clyde was right. He died in 1997 at the age of 91 years old. In 2006, the spacecraft which made a flyby of Pluto called ‘New horizons’ is the highest launch speed but still took 10 years reaching to Pluto. In August of the same year, New horizons proceeded to Jupiter. Us from the Earth put off Pluto from the list of planets because it have different orbit from the Earth. There is other minor planet that reviews the same classification.

For 76 years that we had known Pluto as a planet, it was now classified as ‘dwarf planet’ and named ‘134340’by the Minor Planet Center (MPC), the official organization responsible for collecting data about asteroids and comets in our solar system. 

Many people in the Earth even haven’t had chance to see Pluto by their eye. We gave the definition to one object that it is the planet but when time passed by we didn’t see it that way anymore even it still moves in the same way.

Similar to someone who had always been with us and when time passed, something had changed. Someone or something we had lost through our life for some reason. Sometimes we didn’t realize they were there all the time. The day we think about the persons in our memory,  the same time we think about Pluto.

New horizons made its closest approach to Pluto on July 2015 before it flew beyond Kuiper belt. It carried ashes of the man who didn’t care no matter what this planet is, it would always be his Pluto.

Dear Clyde W. Tombaugh

The man who had traveled for his beloved planet till the end of his life.

Have you ever had your own “Pluto” ?

PLUTONIANS is a contemporary art exhibition and event that gives an expression of a relationship, distance, and feeling through the story of a dwarf planet called “Pluto”. Since Pluto was downgraded the status to “dwarf planet”,  Pluto’s story was construed and this brought us back to a recollection of our relationship with Pluto and our missing persons in the past.

Mini Exhibition – Art pieces from people who would like to join us by posting their works in Plutonians facebook page

 

So, we expressed the feeling through art, poetry, music, photography, short film, and including all visualness in the event to make this to be a remembrance of Pluto.

While the Earth’s still rotating, on July 14, 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft flew 12,500 km above the surface of Pluto, making the first spacecraft to explore the dwarf planet. As we gathered information and researched, we’ve found that there are many people who feel bound up with Pluto, though they haven’t met this planet by themselves yet.

“We would like to create a small community gathering together to cherish and tell Pluto’s story through art and music in our own ways. Pluto is still a planet in our memories as always.”
