British artist Luke Jerram takes us to the Moon with his incredible installation characterized by a strong visual impact. The huge planet measures 7 meters in diameter and consists of a sphere illuminated from the inside, on which are projected images of lunar surface provided by NASA. The Moon has been exposed in many countries such as France, Belgium, United Kingdom, India, and China.
Museum of the Moon, this is the name of the installation, is adapted from time to time to the location that houses it, with the aim of being extremely suggestive. It will be that after the eclipse of Bloody Moon the interest in this fascinating planet is conquering even the least romantic and that as the artist himself says:
“Since the beginning of human history, the moon has been a sort of ‘cultural mirror’ of our ideas, beliefs and ways of seeing the world. The museum of the moon allows us to observe the differences and cultural similarities between different countries. Depending on where the work is shown, its meaning changes radically”.
The images and the video you can find in our gallery are really spectacular, for the rest you can check the project website.
