Abstract expressions in understanding the context of the greater universe
The Ether Chamber represents an ever-expanding gesture into our infinite Universe from the manifest to the unmanifest. It is a alchemical assembly of geometries, material essences and processes, images and texts, relating to various infinities aimed at communicating beyond our known galaxy towards Andromeda and into infinite space. More materially, the Ether Chamber contains essences of the world’s waters, trees, and flowers, an amalgam of metals, and a distillation of human bloods; all separately ordered and contained within the chamber.
Our relationship with the Moon throughout history as an artistic muse
We celebrate how the Moon acts as a spinneret that captures starlight and stirs all life on Earth. Through unique lunar imagery expressed in the Arts, much of the projects interpret the complex braiding of aesthetic feelings related to the sweeping presence and intense radiance of the Moon through dance, poetry, drawing, photography, painting and sculpture. The Moon Chamber speaks to our capacity to create with our hands – from the nano scale (nano sculptures) to the human scale (the lunar lander itself) to form the “Moon Museum.”
The communicative dimensions of humanity through the Metasphere
The Metasphere represents humanity’s reach into the cosmos through the infrastructure and remains of space travel developed over the past 50 years. This infrastructure has radically and permanently changed the way we view ourselves, our planet, and our purpose. The Metasphere Chamber speaks to the communicative dimensions of humanity – from our capacity for language to our communications technologies. Our ability to communicate through spoken and visual languages has enabled humanity to spread across the planet, into the depths of the oceans, and extend deep into space.
The situated context for humanity
The Earth Chamber speaks to our natural context and environmental conditions on Earth that have given rise to humanity. The images within this chamber position the Earth in relation to our Sun as the origin and core of light and life that shines through the entire MoonArk. Images and elements in the Earth Chamber represent an outside-in and inside-out vision from terrestrial and aquatic views of our planet.
