Dorset Moon


Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon is an astounding, illuminated, seven metre diameter spherical sculpture and features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. 
At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit sphere represents 5km of the moon’s surface. 
This incredible installation is a fusion of large-scale NASA lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound audio created by Ivor Novello Award and BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones.

Carrie Mason – Pledge

A short performance of collective drawing made by audience participation, Pledge is inspired by Neil Armstrong’s iconic words as the artist wearing hobnail boots takes repetitive small steps to crush Dorset lump charcoal into fine dust then pledging to reduce their carbon footprint before taking a giant leap onto an adjacent canvas and inviting the audience to follow suit. The total performance lasts one hour 57 minutes, the duration of the first moonwalk.
