The exploits of Yuri Gagarin, John Glenn, and Neil Armstrong ignited a worldwide obsession with futuristic living, but where did it all go? Intense optimism for a space-age future invaded every aspect of design, from fashion and furniture to architecture and typography. But, all of a sudden, it vanished, and euphoria about the future gave way to anxiety. Where's My Space Age? charts the rise and fall of the space age aesthetic and highlights a trend among contemporary artists to question this deceptively complex period. A unique examination of a fascinating era, Where's My Space Age? is one giant leap into a world of nostalgia.
