THxxx to Krazykosmickid aka Natasha Tontey for the inflatable lips and for the turbo engines DJ set. Many thanks for all the individual contribution and various speaking-in-alien-tongues performances (Irina Gheorghe), Tarot reading, installations and cosplayer presentations that took place at Lifepatch during a looong night.

“The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic ocean. On this shore, we’ve learned most of what we know. Recently, we’ve waded a little way out, maybe ankle-deep, and the water seems inviting. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” – Carl Sagan, Cosmos

“Pulau Semesta / Island Universe” is an old cosmological theory initially espoused by mystic Swedenborg in which, without direct observation (no tools, no telescopes), anticipated ideas about galaxies/clusters/cosmic filaments. On earth, it relates to island biogeography that shaped our understanding of evolutionary theory /Indonesian (Malay Archipelago) ecology & natural history, and species (both human & non human) dispersal as well as mechanisms of speciation (species formation =origin of novelty).

What kind of insularity is possible today? Waters are rising, islands get drowned, how to breach/jump cross over the ever-widening gulfs btw various individual isolates data/world bubbles/island continents (and is it actually a thing to look fwd in an era where everything is connected, geo-located, swappable etc?)

What is Cozzzmo? Cozzzmonautica has been largely a bottom-up collaborative, traveling, nomadic event, always hosted by local networks of amateur astronomers, space exploration aficionados, former science teachers, sci-fi communes & clubs collaborating with various artists trying to organize a thematic sleepover (with people coming over with sleeping bags, mats, favorite pillows to sleep for one night in the same environment). It is always no- or low-budget, localized, regional and based on local fandoms, flows of passion, amateur/hobby researchers, informal networks. It draws inspiration from javafuturism(no tourism!), afrofuturism, sinofuturism, Soviet space exploration & cosmism, traditional paleo-astronomy, STEAM(promotion of Science +Arts) initiatives, Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series, failed & utopian space agency projects.
The crux of the event was temporarily transforming various venues into cozy makeshift spaceships by imaginative means – and inviting everybody to tuck in and participate in a series of lectures, documentaries and sleep concerts.
These art & science wonder shows and sleep concerts take place in galleries, regional natural history museums, university classrooms, private homes and clubs under the banner of The Space Agency for Nocturnal Journeys to the Origins of the Universe.
Here is a preview of the previous cozzzmo edition from 2017 in Timișoara, Shipwreck Cosmologies.

Pulau Semesta

Masuki Gerbang Bintang! Cozzzmo Edisi Lifepatch Yogyakarta (2018)

Pulau Semesta adalah acara berbagi satu malam yang diprakarsai oleh Ştefan Tiron dari Bucharest. Pada saat yang sama, kami membuka Stargate yang dibangun oleh V. Leac.

“Pulau Semesta / Pulau Alam Semesta” adalah teori kosmologis lama yang awalnya didukung oleh mistik Swedia di mana, tanpa pengamatan langsung (tidak ada alat, tidak ada teleskop), gagasan yang diantisipasi tentang skala besar alam semesta: galaksi / gugus / filamen kosmik. Di bumi ini berkaitan dengan biogeografi pulau yang membentuk pemahaman kita tentang teori evolusi / Ekologi Indonesia (Nusantara Nusantara) & sejarah alam, dan spesies (baik manusia & non manusia) penyebaran serta mekanisme spesiasi (pembentukan spesies = asal kebaruan). Orang Jawa diyakini hidup dalam dua kosmis adalah: kosmik makro dan kosmik mikro. Keduanya hidup harmonis. Makro kosmos diwakili oleh kekuatan supernatural alam (adikodrati). Dan kosmos mikro yang diwakili oleh manusia dan alam. Alam semesta memiliki aspek hierarkis: atas, tengah, dan bawah. Seperti Jogjakarta memiliki mitologi poros imajiner. Gunung Merapi, tugu golok, gilig / patung Jogjakarta, laut selatan, alun-alun lor, keraton / istana kerajaan, alun-alun kidul, panggung kerapyak, laut selatan / laut selatan. Filosofi poros imajiner berhubungan dengan manusia dengan supernatural (dewa), manusia dengan manusia dan manusia dengan alam.

Insularitas seperti apa yang mungkin terjadi hari ini? Dengan air naik dan pulau-pulau semakin tenggelam, bagaimana kita melanggar / melompat melintasi teluk yang semakin melebar antara berbagai data isolat individu / gelembung dunia / benua pulau (dan apakah itu benar-benar suatu hal yang dinantikan di era di mana semuanya terhubung, geo -located, swappable dll?). Itu sebabnya kami membangun Gerbang Bintang di Lifepatch untuk Anda! Kami mengundang semua pengamat bintang, pengembara angkasa dalam, aktivis langit gelap, gelandangan antar dimensi, pemimpi galaksi untuk bergabung dengan pesawat luar angkasa malam kami di Lifepatch dan memasuki Stargate yang dibuat oleh Vasile Leac. Buat para pelamun, nomaden-nomaden ruang angkasa, aktifis-aktifis langit nan gelap, para gelandangan antar dimensi, dan para pemimpi galaksi, marilah bergabung ke dalam pesawat ruang angkasa malam kami di Lifepatch, dan bersama-sama kita masuki Gerbang Bintang.

Acara ini berlangsung pada:

  • Hari/Tanggal: Sabtu 7 April 2018 – Minggu 8 April 22018
  • Waktu: 20:00 WIB hingga 8.00 WIB
  • Tempat: Rumah Lifepatch
  • Alamat: Jl. Dr. Sutomo no 696 (Belakang Museum Batik) RT 048/ RW 012 Kelurahan Bausasran, Kecamatan Danurejan, Yogyakarta 55212

Acara ini bersifat gratis dan terbuka untuk umum.

Tentang Cozzzmonautica

Apa itu Cozzzmo? Sejak tahun 2006 Cozzzmonautica telah menjadi acara kolaboratif, bepergian, nomaden yang bottom-up, yang selalu diselenggarakan oleh jaringan lokal astronom amatir, hacklabs, eksplorasi ruang angkasa, guru sains, fiksi ilmiah & fanclubs berkolaborasi dengan berbagai artis & pemain yang mencoba untuk mengatur tematik sleep overs (dengan orang-orang datang dengan kantong tidur, tikar, bantal favorit untuk tidur selama satu malam di lingkungan yang sama). Selalu tidak ada atau rendah-anggaran, non komersial, nirlaba, lokal, regional dan berdasarkan fandom lokal, aliran gairah, peneliti amatir / hobi, jaringan informal. Ini menarik inspirasi baik dari javafuturisme, afrofuturisme, sinofuturisme, eksplorasi ruang angkasa & kosmisme Soviet, paleo-astronomi tradisional, inisiatif STEAM (promosi Sains + Seni), seri Cosmos karya Carl Sagan, proyek badan luar angkasa yang gagal & utopis. Inti dari acara itu untuk sementara mengubah berbagai tempat menjadi ruang angkasa darurat yang nyaman dengan cara imajinatif – dan mengundang semua orang untuk menyelipkan, bermimpi dan berpartisipasi dalam serangkaian ceramah, dokumenter dan konser tidur. Keajaiban seni dan sains ini menunjukkan dan konser tidur berlangsung di galeri, museum sejarah alam regional, ruang kelas universitas, rumah pribadi dan klub di bawah bendera The Space Agency untuk Nocturnal Journeys ke Origins of the Universe.
