Challenges is an interactive video loop. It records the viewer and overlays them into the video of the Challenger explosion. The video is also affected by the audio, which consists of segmented, distorted pieces of Carl Sagan's famous Pale Blue Dot speech. As the audio becomes more distorted, the video also becomes more affected, which in turn reveals the viewer. The viewer is superimposed over video of the largest failure in NASA history, as Sagan speaks to the true nature of how small of a role humanity plays in the universe-at-large.
