Television & Small Screen

View of the Moon scene.jpg

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

Of all the types of cultural assets preserved in the Lunar Codex, video is one form that cannot be captured practically in archival form on Nanofiche. Film and video features are therefore preserved exclusively on nickel-shielded digital memory in the Polaris time capsule.

In addition to shorter features geared for YouTube, Vimeo, and the small screen, including the beautifully-wrought A New View of the Moon, the Lunar Codex notably includes 301 full-length episodes of the long-running television series Colour In Your Life, documenting the life and works of artists around the globe.

To Scale: (2018) - GM1

- A film by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh

- Directed by and cinematography by Alex Gorosh

- Telescope - 12" collapsible Dobsonian reflector with Televue 13mm Ethos eyepiece

- "One warm summer evening... I noticed the moon was out. I rolled my telescope into my apartment elevator and took it out to the sidewalk. Soon, a young couple walked up, clearly curious, and asked to look through it. Their incredulous reaction and expressions of awe over seeing the moon brought close was a joy to watch. I thought to myself, hey, maybe there’s a good short film here. And there was."
