Moon Gallery

Guy Livingston is one of a hundred artists selected to create art for the Moon Gallery, which will probably be launched into space and land on the moon in 2022. This project, sponsored by ESTEC (European Space Agency) offers the chance to reflect on the issues of colonization, space travel, memory, politics, and space-time.

I tried to incorporate some of these themes into my artwork. Although I have been designing artist boxes for years, this is the smallest one I ever made, at just under 1 cubic centimeter.

My contribution involved burning a poem (see below) whose ash will travel to the moon.
