Our amazing Marketing intern Will has put together an adventure through MASS MoCA that will make everyone sit at the edge of their seats. Enjoy the first chapter below…
A long time ago in a gallery far, far away…
There lay hidden a piece of a story told long ago. Trapped within the rubble of a recent exhibition, the Millennium Falcon and its famous passengers are wondering if they will ever be able to release themselves from this chaotic star system they call KidSpace. To the passengers KidSpace does not resemble any type of outerspace they have yet to encounter (and that is a lot if you think about how long R2D2 and C-3PO have been around). After hours of frustrating efforts to remove themselves they finally broke free with the help of a little Wookie muscle and a little help from the Force.
KidSpace was most definitely one of the strangest star systems any of our heroes had seen and the Millennium Falcon began swooping in closer to examine some of the fascinating environments:
They spotted and were amazed by some vibrantly colored reef-like formations that were obviously mutated from a related Earth species.
Continuing to explore, they spotted a frenzy of activity off in the distance. A brilliant light was shining and thousands of beams were radiating from it. It looked like a furious battle was being fought and the crew steered their ship closer to get a better view and to see if they could catch some action.
However when they made their way closer they realized that this was not a battle scene but rather a super nova that was hurtling moon-sized chunks of debris in all directions mixed with fiery streams of escaping gases. Pushing her speed and agility to the max, Han solo whipped the Falcon around and bolted from KidSpace faster than you can say “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.”
