Abstract

Conundrum Luna is a short video work reflecting on humanity’s impending colonization of the moon. A gift of a drum in the shape of our nearest planetary neighbor launches a journey that blends echoes of sci-fi cinema, moon missions past and present, and the increasing vulnerability of the lunar environment to human exploitation.

The project will be performed live in VR, but the performance will be designed for spectating on traditional screens.
