An Art in Space video installation celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Frank Pietronigro’s first parabolic flight, when the artist flew in weightlessness from the NASA Johnson Space Center on April 4, 1998 while creating ‘drift paintings’ as scientific research.
Chiori Santiago, arts advocate and writer, flew with Frank’s team as In-flight Journalist. She is featured floating throughout 360 Degrees. This video work shows a painter’s creative experience as one story celebrating human space exploration. This flight was part of the Texas Space Grant’s NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Program and was flown in collaboration with the California Space Grant Consortium and the                                     San Francisco Art Institute.

Presented by the artist in memorial of Chiori Santiago, who passed away the night we were celebrating Yuri’s Night Bay Area 2007 at NASA Ames Research Center where the world premiere of 360 Degrees was first presented. In 360 Degrees we see Chiori floating above us, waving to us at times, while sharing in our Art In A Different Light exhibition curated by Robert Melton.
