LUKE JERAM – THE MOON

The celestial body that is pretty much a controller of many actions on the Earth, form occurrences in nature to humans’ actions. The magic mirror that can move water, light up the ways, affects climatic changes and influences a person’s mood. A cultural captain of believes and understanding surround and being. A hope for answers and a craves for untangled questions. A compass. A time pointer. A character explanation. All over the world, he is signed with countless different cultural, historical, ritual and religious stories. Everlasting muse of artists and poets, exposed through umpteen words, and umpteen expressions imbued by strong, energetic feelings, illuminated by dreams and adorned by multitude imaginations. This actuator of creativity and phantasy was always waking a heap by its’ mystery.

This reflector of life impersonator is a source of passion that leads in riddles on many levels. Exploration of this celestial being stayed in rhyme with its’ enigma. In a range of ten years, from 1959 to 1969’s, in a political and industrial game of Soviet Union’s Luna 2 and United States’ Apollo 11 mission, the question stayed: Did man ever landed on the Moon?

During the history of humanity, in expressions you could very often find a story about grabbing the Moon, bringing the Moon, catching it by a rope, making a ladder for reaching the Moons’ surface. Even using its’ special power for traveling through dimensions and time. Has this big watcher stayed unreachable?

Well… Not anymore for sure. Beside all scientific facts on one side, conspiracy theories on another, and dreams and wishes on the third side… We have to say this famous saying: “If Mohammed will not go to the mountain, the mountain must come to Mohammed”. Luke Jeram used his magical artistic powers to make a deal with the Moon. Thanks to him, dreams came closer…

And so…The Moon landed on the Earth.

A seven-meter diameter of the extraordinary sphere is not just landed here, but it is going in a walking peace all around the globe. Shining in its’ divine and leaves visitors spell-bounded for forever. This giant sparkling creature features 120dpi detailed NASA image of its’ exterior in a Cosmic Reality. Installation is “gesamtkunstwerk” (total artwork), that includes a sound composition by Dan Jones (winning composer of a BAFTA and Ivor Novello Award). An approximate scale of 1:500,000 speak for 5km of the surface of this body within each centimeter of inner light of this marvelous sculpture. Walking “Museum of the Moon” presents an ongoing collection of stories and mythologies connected with itself, in a continuous tangling and untangling a riddle of individuals who grabbed the grace of its’ physical presence. The traveler who connects cultures, myths, similarities, and differences, so far astonished people in UK, France, Scotland, India, China, and Australia.
