Space Chic: Artist Will Paint in Zero GravityS

For his new project "Life in Space," artist Nasser Azam plans to paint aboard a "vomit comet"-style airplane ride while in zero-g 23,000 feet in the air. During the twenty-second intervals of weightlessness he plans to complete several large paintings, and he'll be outfitted in a designer jumpsuit put together by Alexander McQueen — very posh. Azam says he likes to explore the connection between art and science, and that he's heavily influenced by Edvard Munch, but you've got to wonder whether the lack of gravity might have his work looking more like Jackson Pollock.
