iNASA is a suite of thirty quirky stories, a set of episodes in a long tall tale about contemporary civilisation and life, described as 'vaguely autobiographical' by Sunshine Coast painter David Howard.
The term 'NASA' acts as a metaphor for Western culture. Each work is in itself a complete mini-narrative. A space-suited pair face 'change' together; become tribal and endangered; entangled, scared and lost; float about and fall in love in a vibrant 'real and imagined' landscape, under the gaze of an intriguing third figure.
