MAKE IT YOUR JOURNEY
SHOOTING FOR THE MOON
The commonly known phrase to shoot for the Moon was in the sixties taken literally. Not only were we competing to achieve something very difficult and ambitious, that something was literally the Moon.
Stellar bullets carrying lunar material portray a circular journey of achievements defined by the external world. Searching outside for what is already inside as Sisyphus shooting for the Moon with the Moon. One goes upwards as much as one goes inwards.
The story goes that the exploration of the Earth began with Eve eating the apple of the tree of knowledge. Tempted by the words of a serent, Eve further tempted Adam.
With the motive of a snake in a stellar context I want to emphasize that the desire to explore needs to come from the inside. It was not the apple of knowledge, it was the reason for which Eve took it. The outside world. When exploring new dimensions, depicted in Spherica with a lunar meteorite, the serpent is covering Eve`s ears for the temptation of the outside world to stay unheard. To truly explore new dimensions means to start listening to the inner self.
Genesis of body and mind portrayed in the mother of chess pieces, the queen. If she was a chess player, she would be the AlphaGo, an AI based player who is with his positional chess strategy winning not only against human players, but as well against big-data driven computer programs. And with it, bringing back hope to creativity, that seemed to have already lost against big data.
Stellar Queen is composed of two parts. A body; material part embodying the current physical reality and a mind, depicted in Spherica; representing creativity, opening doors to new realities. They are most powerful when working together. The head of the queen forms a human necklace, giving humanity the power of creativity.
The Moon as the Earth's nearest celestial object is often perceived as the real beginning of outer space. The distance to the Moon is 384.000 km which is approximately the distance the light conquers in 1 second.
Manfred approached me with a challenge to integrate Spherica into his Rolls Royce to portray the feelings of his drive taking him out of this world, wherever his mind desires. Creating matching designs with his wife's Luna necklace keeps them connected between two parallel worlds during his interstellar drive.
DANCING IN THE MOONRAIN
In 1950 a renowned photographer Allan Grant captured ballet dancers dancing on the Moon from the Destination Moon movie set. Yet the dancing scene was not in the movie, not among deleted scenes, nor in its script. All we got is one captured moment with hidden answers.
In a glimpse of a second I felt life in that dance. Our dance, that we leave behind on Earth. Captured in one emergent, holistic moment of our existence. The project in the making is portraying curious dance through life on Earth. Sculpture of moments visually reminds of the rain on the Moon, yet there is no rain on the Moon. So the dance through life must transcend our material reality.
ON EARTH FROM SPACE
