Beam Camp Project 2017: August Salvage Station No. 8 designed by Shing Yin Khor & built by 90+ kids.

Things have gotten even more fantastic in the woods of New Hampshire. Following last year’s Giant FlipBooks, Beam Campers got creative again, this summer building more out-of-this-world contraptions, including an abandoned intergalactic space station and a kinetic sculpture that looks like the mothership.

Salvage Station No. 8 envisioned by artist Shing Yin Khor is an immersive experiential installation that creates a sci-fi narrative of an abandoned space salvage station lost in the woods. Campers ages 10-18 built the station using fabrication skills they learned at camp, including scenic carpentry and painting, interactive electronics, plaster casting and more. Youth crafted finely-detailed props, including intergalactic specimens, faux space gear and an old-fashioned bulletin board for note-swapping among space travelers. Kids incorporated storytelling and theater to present the otherworldly piece to the outside world.
