This special work, designed by the artist Luke Jerram, has been meeting visitors in UK and many European cities over the past few years as Museum of The Moon. In order to give realistic expression in Jerram’s design, Nasa’s moon photos were used. The design with a diameter of seven meters reflects the reality with a scale of 1:500,000. Each centimeter of the spherical sculpture represents five kilometers of the astronomical body’s actual surface. The round form surface, made in sculptural form, is covered with moon photos. In order to make the realistic moon appearance of the Jerram’s design, high-color rendering luminaires were used as backlighting inside the sculpture. In this context, Museum of The Moon exhibition successfully displays lighting and sound composition created by Dan Jones.
