OPTICKS / Send An Image To The Moon And Back




Event Description

This project turns people’s thoughts into space travel, as their images bounce to the Moon and back. During the performance images submitted by the audience will be transmitted as radio signals to the Moon, reflected back and projected live, using Visual Moonbounce, developed after WWII for espionage purposes. OPTICKS transforms the original intent of the technology into playful international cooperation. Postcards of the images will be sent back to the original senders with a message from Daniela.
