Yesterday I posted something inÂ Art21‘s “Centerfield” column about some of Katie Paterson’s work. One of the works discussed centers on a Morse code broadcast transmitted to the moon’s surface. Paterson then captured and re-transcribed the same message it’s reflected, return journey. In a similar spirit, I read about Agnese Meyer-Brandis’ “Moon Goose Analogue” onÂ We Make Money Not ArtÂ Â and thought I could post it here. Brandis is in the midst of a very long project to breed Moon Geese â€” geese who are slated to travel with her to the moon in 2027.You can read more about this project by goingÂ here, and in the meantime check out this amazing, sometimes Wes-Anderson-feel trailer!
Agnes Meyer-Brandis: The Moon Goose Analogue: Lunar Migration Bird FacilityÂ is part of theÂ AV Festival.Â And for any and all of you who happen to be in the UK, the film and installation in on view through the 31st of March, 2012, at theÂ Great North Museum: HancockÂ in Newcastle. This project was commissioned and curated by Â The Arts Catalyst as part of theÂ ACE funded Republic of the Moon exhibition held with FACT,Â Liverpool over the last few months.
