You probably do not give much thought to the moon. I mean, it's in the night sky, everything is bright and cool and stuff, but if you do not have a telescope, you can not enjoy all the intricate details of your viewpoint here on Earth. The artist Luke Jerrams Moon is much smaller than the one that appears in the sky every night, but it's much easier to guess, and he could come to a place near you.
The massive exhibition called Museum of the Art Moon has been making its rounds for over a year. Although it's just a scale model of something we can all see almost every night, it gets a lot of attention.
The Museum of the Moon is a 1: 500,000 representation of the Earth's only natural satellite. Its incredibly detailed surface is actually a series of NASA images, perfectly put together to showcase the entire lunar surface.
It can not really be described as a "model", at least not in the traditional sense, since it's not me trying to reproduce the hills, valleys and craters that give depth to the surface of the moon, but it's still incredibly lifelike. The exhibition is internally illuminated, which contributes to the aesthetics, since the huge sphere seems to shine as the moon in the sky.
The big ball has already made it to countless festivals and art exhibitions, but it still has plenty of tour dates ahead. In fact, the show was such a great success that the team behind the project now has several moons that appear in different places at the same time, so that more and more people can catch a glimpse of it.
