After last week’s weather conditions cut short the moon art installation in Zouhouri Square, the Museum of the Moon will illuminate Larnaca once again. For just three days this week, the moon will be set up again from Tuesday until Thursday to allow more people to witness this impressive touring installation by Luke Jerram.
“With the reinstatement of the Museum of the Moon,” say organisers Once in A Blue Moon and Wonderdots, “we want to express our gratitude for the incredible and unprecedented response and support we received, which gives us the courage to continue and gradually implement our upcoming projects. We especially thank Larnaca Biennale, which served as our driving force. While the moon may depart for its next destination, Once in A Blue Moon will return, as always, with unique interactive experiences and special artistic interventions.”
Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones. Since its creation in 2016, the Museum of the Moon has travelled to various corners of the globe, presented in different ways in indoor and outdoor venues.
