LUKE JERRAM’S MOON: CATCH THE MOVING AND MESMERIZING EXHIBITION

Find out more Luke Jerram’s moon.

Some museums are inherently eye-catching and the focus of attention and objectives, regardless of the value they house, such as the world’s largest science museum. And for unique museums, there is the traveling exhibition about our neighboring satellite, featuring a 7-meter large-scale model of the Moon.

This is a traveling piece that has already visited various countries and still plans to explore more locations. With NASA’s collaboration, this grand Moon serves as both an artistic and scientific representation of the Earth’s satellite, but, above all, it stands out as something unique and captivating!

Bringing all the faces of the Moon closer than ever

This Moon, known as the Museum of the Moon, is the creation of British artist Luke Jerram. It is a traveling sculpture with an approximate scale of 1:500,000, meaning each centimeter represents about five square kilometers of the lunar surface.

Measuring 7 meters in diameter, this globe is composed using a NASA image at 120 dots per inch over a total of 21 meters. Specifically, it’s based on a photograph captured by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s camera, resulting in a stunning 100-megapixel image of the Moon. As depicted in the video, the sculpture achieves a realistic lunar appearance, capturing intricate textures. Rather than a single globe, there are multiple replicas (all 7 meters in diameter), allowing this unique museum to embark on various tours worldwide.

The artist meticulously researched and documented the celestial body to ensure the creation reflects the Moon with maximum precision during exhibitions. Notably, the sculpture also showcases the detailed features of the Moon’s far side, which we now have the opportunity to explore further with missions like Chang’e 4.

7-meter Moons scattered around the world

Jerram found inspiration for this creation in Bristol, where he noticed the significant variation in tides by observing them daily. This realization also sparked the idea that he materialized in his work titled “Tide”. 

The sculpture is exhibited in both open and enclosed spaces, accompanied by the music of composer Dan Jones. The project involved collaboration with the University of Bristol, the UK Space Agency, and the Association for Science and Discovery Centres. 

WHAT IS ARTECHOUSE? NEW YORK DIGITAL MUSEUM 

It’s scheduled to visit numerous locations in Europe and other continents, so if you happen to be in one of those countries, you can take the opportunity to approach this intriguing replica of our satellite! (it already passed through Spain in 2018, specifically in Bilbao).
