Adrift: Earth Refugie Vessels
By John Craig Freeman
Moon Lust is a speculative project that explores global interests and issues pertaining to lunar exploration and habitation. As a curated mobile augmented reality exhibition, Moon Lust hopes to facilitate a dialogue about topics such as lunar mining, space tourism, celestial territories, space ecology and policy, by locating augmented visualizations in and around the Adler Planetarium. The exhibition will take place on the 21st June, 2012.
The Future of Reality artist collective will invite a select group of artists to respond to the topics and present a located augmented reality exhibition of 6-10 artworks that best articulate the concerns and complexities of lunar exploration. In conjunction with the exhibition, a website will be established where participants can share their thoughts and ideas.
