Inaugurating this new APB_Installations is the “Museum of the Moon” by Luke Jerram, an 8000 square foot multimedia artwork that has been on a worldwide museum tour stimulating our sense of conservation for our one and only place to live: the earth. Over a year in the creation, Jerram creates a moon landing. Jerram used NASA's high-resolution imagery to make his giant moon. The moon sculpture is exactly half a million times smaller than the real thing, made with data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Researching the actual communications between the astronauts and worldwide tracking stations Jerram created a soundtrack and Luna Moonlighting.
“Throughout history, the moon has inspired artists, poets, scientists, writers, and musicians the world over,” “The ethereal blue light cast by a full moon, the delicate crescent following the setting sun, or the mysterious dark side of the moon has evoked passion and exploration. Different cultures around the world have their own historical, cultural, scientific and religious relationships to the moon.” quotes British artist Luke Jerram.
The arrival of “Museum of the Moon” comes to APB directly from a London museum where the artwork broke attendance records. Jerram’s artwork drew over 2 million in China, 640,000 in Belgium and over 1.4 million attendees in London. A spherical sculpture with internal illumination in the shape of the 23-foot moon designed from high-resolution NASA images. celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
The exhibition was sponsored by the Imagine Museum, St. Petersburg, FL.
