"Above" comes in an edition of only 55 uniquely individual copies. Each hubbed, factory pressed disc comes housed in the lid of a vintage Kodak film can, each one in it’s original box, with an expiration date of 1969. Each can is modified inside and out with original NASA photos from the same year as well. Then inside each can is a space drama diorama of sorts…embedded in polyurethane is a hand burnt and distressed astronaut figure, blown out of his capsule on impact and floating weightlessly away through a field of actual meteorite chunks, individually melted bits of his space craft, jagged shards of metal, tiny beaded stars and other man-made debris. Each can in it's stamped box then comes wrapped up snugly in a folded and string tied antique NASA photograph w/ hand printed numbered insert on the back, with an extra NASA photo or postcard inside as well.
This is the limited edition version.
There is also a digipak version of this release in an edition of 100 copies.
