Man in Space is a 1982 installation made by artist Jonathan Borofsky in collaboration with filmmaker Gary Glassman. It consists of a monitor on a base and a wall painting behind it. The video alternates white drawings on a black ground and black drawings on a white ground. In the centre of the screen, an anthropomorphic figure with a rabbit’s head seems to be permanently falling. Its arms and legs, represented by empty volumes, are not connected to its trunk and its body, which is almost like that of a robot, appears fragmented. In the centre of the figure there is a clock with hands which seem to be detached as well.
