Art: Art as a Psychological Support for the Outer Space Habitat

ByAyako Ono

ABSTRACT While space technologies are advanced, the designs that support holistic human existence in space tend to lack stimulation for the human senses. Nowadays, “Art and Science” is commonly stated to have integral humanistic ideas and abilities. To improve the quality of life simultaneously in space and on Earth (as a spin-off of space developments), this paper demonstrates some examples and possibilities. The topics are: the artistic manipulation of exterior and interior design elements, the possibilities of Space Art, and the psychological effects of all of these.
