An Exploration of the MASS MoCA Galaxy Part Deux

A long time ago in a gallery far, far away…

The Millennium Falcon and its heroic passengers have escaped the perilous star system of Kidspace and found themselves barreling down an antiquated worm hole. Ever since they entered into the MASS MoCA Galaxy it has not been hard to find excitement and a plethora of foreign terrains and curious lifeforms. The worm hole shot them into the center of the Galaxy that revolves around an aptly-sized planet, Planet LeWitt.

The entirety of Planet LeWitt is void of lifeforms, most likely due to the extreme heat of its atmosphere that comes with being located in the center of the galaxy. However, the Millennium Falcon’s hull has been protected by alterations made by Mr. Solo to the shield generators that are able to provide warship-grade shielding. Thus protected the Falcon took the opportunity to explore the incredibly varied terrain of this quiet planet.

After hours of exploring weird and unfamiliar terrain the Falcon finally came across an environment that brought back hundreds of memories of lightspeed and travels in hyperspace:

LeWitt was also filled with peculiar terrains scarred horribly by laser blasts, covered in psychedelic topography, and/or covered with sparse elements:

This last region was supposedly created when the Planet’s previous inhabitants plotted out 100 specific points absolutely randomly. This even made C-3PO’s logic drive freeze over in bewilderment while R2-D2 tweeted and whirred incoherently about the absurdity of such a task.

Han and Chewy maneuvered the ship away to calm the robots and finished exploring LeWitt; encountering more odd terrain and fascinating cloud formations in the upper atmosphere.

As usual, our heroes ran into trouble when they flew past an extremely unbelievable yellow black hole and pushed the ship to its maximum thrust to escape the gravitational pull and subsequently sending it off uncontrollably into yet another worm hole, whose endpoint is unknown.

Be sure to stay tuned to the MASS MoCA Blog to follow more of the Millennium Falcon’s journey through the MASS MoCA Galaxy. Also be sure to check out the Falcon’s Flickr photo set to see additional images of its journey.

P.S. As one could imagine, C-3PO took the time to show off his superior language interpretation as a protocol droid by translating the long forgotten languages that could be seen on Planet LeWitt :
