Reading Hall 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

The Readings sections showcase a selection of works from the three time capsules Peregrine, Nova, and Polaris, representing only a small fraction of the total works archived by the Lunar Codex.
 

Reading Hall E highlights short-form works by poets and writers. The included works form a selection of touchstone poems, some of my own favorites, bookmarks of discovery, favorite works composed by other writers, and poems I wish I'd written.

_____

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