Photographer's Note

I continue my reportage from the installation titled “Museum of the Moon”, which I had the chance to admire while visiting the Bristol Cathedral. The central composition is probably the most obvious choice here. The model of the Moon simply hangs above the central nave, and it is much less confusing and slightly less surprising than in the previous photo:
Also due to the wider view the size appears smaller and the effect is less overwhelming as in the previous photo.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
