Inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry and the anonymous artists who depicted Halley’s Comet in 1066, Space Tapestry: Faraway Missions is a wall hanging made by artist Aleksandra Mir (b. 1967) which is 58 metres long, made on synthetic canvas.

A visual story of human space exploration based on legends, recorded events, scientific discoveries and predictions of an imagined future, it will be produced and drawn with felt tip pens by the artist in her London studio with young artist collaborators.

Further sections of this work, which is 200 metres in total, will be displayed at other UK and international venues.
