This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From his studio in Brooklyn, Steven Brower is one of the artists "who purposely obfuscate the distinction between fiction and reality".  For a 2008 New York gallery exhibition he brought together eight years worth of collected objects as part of his imaginary space-related one-man corporation, Brower Propulsion Laboratory, modeled on NASA.  From his control center he broadcasts live camera feeds, most recently based from a spacecraft that closely resembles the Mars Sojourner Rover.

Brower has been so successful with his simulations that the Seattle Museum of Space Flight has permanently installed his life-size Lunar Excursion Module, which he created in 2004.
