Museum of the Moon is a new touring artwork by Luke Jerram that will be presented in a number of arts and cultural festivals over the coming years. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features incredibly detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. As the artwork travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and collect the local moon mythologies and stories, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The latest presentations of the artwork were at University of Bristol (UK), Art Tec (Netherlands), Dommelhof Theatre (Belgium), Lieux Publics (France) and Lakes Alive (UK). Read about it in the Guardian Newspaper.
