OK Go just dropped their most spectacular - and daring - music video yet, “Upside Down & Inside Out.” Filmed in microgravity over many parabolic flights in Russia, “Upside Down & Inside Out” sets a new precedent for what’s possible as artists consider our future in space.
OK Go melds art, music and dance with their passion for science. They are celebrated around the world for tech-savvy choreography and unparalleled artistry. Their latest experiment opens the question: what can artists do when they break the bonds of gravity? As we contemplate how humans will expand our existence in space, we often think about issues like survival, energy sources and communications. OK Go urges us to also think about art.
The Planetary Society is proud to be the band’s non-profit group partner as they share behind-the-scenes details about how they realized their zero-G dream. Tune in:
