It was collected from NASA images.
British artist Luke Jerram (Luke Jerram) went on a new tour with a mobile project Museum of the Moon (“The Museum of the Moon”). In the center of the art project is a sculpture in the form of a satellite of the Earth with a diameter of seven meters.
The installation is made at a scale of 1: 500000 – this is about 120 times closer than seen in the sky with the naked eye. The model was assembled using NASA satellite images, which launched the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera optical camera in 2009. Each centimeter of Jerram’s replica is comparable to five kilometers of the real surface of the satellite.
“The Museum of the Moon” is demonstrated to the music, which was composed by the composer and winner of the BAFTA award, Dan Jones. The installation is placed indoors and outdoors, adapting to this or that place. Where an art object is put, it usually takes place some other event – from exhibitions to festivals and concerts.
Now Jerram shows the moon in Beijing, Canada’s Edmonton and the Orkney Islands. In September the project will come to Europe and will visit Great Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Finland. In Russia, the “Museum of the Moon” has not yet been brought.
