Tavares Strachan thinks big. Ten years ago, the Bahamian artist FedExed a 4.5-ton block of ice from an Alaskan river to Nassau, where he exhibited the block in a solar-powered glass freezer in the courtyard of his childhood elementary school. That was before Strachan created the Bahamas Aerospace and Sea Exploration Center, developing sugarcane-fueled rockets out of locally sourced beach sand and launching them 15 miles in the air. (He later displayed the fallen remnants as sculptural relics.) He’s even trained as a cosmonaut at Star City, the Russian State Cosmonaut Training Center. He’ll have some good stories to tell, in other words.
