‘Museum of the Moon’ is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram, will be installed in the majestic Derby Cathedral and will be open to the public from 16th September 2019. The installation will take on new meaning as part of the spectacular Friday afternoon and evening launch of Derby Festé on Friday September 27.
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.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones.
