GALLERY E

A MANIFEST FOR THE MOON

The Lunar Codex uses digital and analog technology to preserve art, books, music, and more, enclosed in time capsules and launched to the Moon. It is a message-in-a-bottle to the future.

Curatorial Notes

 

Gallery E showcases a selection of works from "The Nova Collection", representing only a small fraction of the total works archived by the Lunar Codex.


The artists in the Codex range far and wide across the globe, from India to the U.S., from Australia to South Africa, from Australia to the Philippines.

 

All bring to their work a sense of immediacy and emotion in the figurative language of the world around us, whether through an expressionist lens or distilled through the idiom of realism.

_____

Works are located as to their respective lunar time capsules as follows: 

IM1 - Intuitive Machines Nova-C Mission 1 to Vallis Schrasöteri (The Nova Collection)

PM1 - Astrobotic Peregrine Mission 1 to Lacus Mortis (The Peregrine Collection)
