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 F showcases a selection of works from "The Nova Collection" and "The Polaris 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 Hungary 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)

GM1 - Astrobotic Griffin Mission 1 to the Lunar South Pole (The Polaris Collection)

THE AGE OF TIME III 1679-1681

Roberta Boffo (2021) - IM1, GM1

- Acrylic on canvas
- 20" x 20"

- In the “The Age of Time” series, the artist looks at time and human history through the memories of trees. With 342 rings in this piece, this tree's memory takes us back to the end of the 1670s and the beginning of the 1680s. Among its memories:

- In March of 1680, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible over central Africa, with totality over what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

- In November the Great Comet of 1680, also called Kirch's Comet after its discoverer, appeared in Earth's vicinity. It was the first comet discovered by telescope.

IN PÚRIBUS: DESPLAZAMIENTOS

Sthef Millán (2020) - GM1

- Oil on canvas
- 35.4" x 27.5"

The title is from the corruption of the Latin expression in puris naturálibus - in pure natural state or naked. The displacements in the piece represent a state of double exposure, suggesting a more intimate and vulnerable being, both physically and mentally.
