Are we alone? The possibility of life existing beyond Earth fascinates and terrifies. Examples of alien life abound in fiction, each ”designed” to reflect particular myths, fears and expectations. However, this space of seemingly boundless imagination is surprisingly limited, materializing in species that resemble humans or animals. Using alien evolution and morphology as a design exercise, Escaping Goldilocks aims to challenge the notion of ”habitable zones” and probes the limits of what we are prepared to recognize as life.
