Assembled from decidedly non-high tech materials, such as plywood, vinyl, and roofing felt, this simulated Russian space capsule appears to have crash-landed in the Park. Inside this whimsical craft, are small personal objects-- souvenirs that refer to the Russian and American collaborations in space-- including a Matrysoshka doll and black and white photographs. This is a homespun and remarkably poignant interpretation of the experience of living in space and returning to earth.
