A Decade With Mars is a ten-year project about time, communities, sustainability and the future. Bristol-based artists Ella Good and Nicki Kent have been meeting a small group of people who applied to become part of a real TV show, meant to air towards the end of 2015, which intends to send ordinary people to live on Mars.

Through meeting a group of people who wish to live on another planet, Ella and Nicki are looking back on Earth, to look at the ways in which we live today and the possibilities for the future. How do we create and sustain our communities?
