Clément Gicquel – Finders Keepers Leaders


Clément Gicquel – Finders Keepers Leaders

Diploma project with Diego Bontognali, Gilles Gavillet

Finders Keepers Leaders is about a contemporary controversy over the privatization of space resources, based on the opposition of two major legal texts. While one is at the origin of the complete pacification of space, for precisely 50 years, the other suggest a free appropriation of space resources by private company, initiating a global rush to the space resources. Decided unilaterally under the guidance of progress, this document raises political, ecological and geopolitical issues threatening a fragile global balance.
