Photographer's Note

Unfortunately, the whole day which I spent in Bristol was cloudy with the worst white type of clouds which make the world nearly unphotographable. It forced me to explore interiors. On the day of my visit, the Bristol Cathedral hosted an extraordinary exhibition called the Museum of the Moon. What you see here is a model of the Moon hanging in the main nave of the Bristol Cathedral. Read more about it below (Source: https://my-moon.org/about/). Check that website for the tour dates and locations. The Museum of the Moon will, for example, visit two locations in Belgium.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programmes their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
