Our attraction to the moon was first expressed through music, poetry, even superstition. Science fiction then created a shift toward thinking about the moon in a scientific, technological way. Now, with plans for lunar-orbiting space station, we are about to make it an extension of the earth itself.
Our fascination with the moon has not always been pure; the “race to the moon” was driven by military, propaganda and patriotic considerations. What place will the moon occupy in our future? Lunacy is a musical, scientific, visual exploration of our relationship with our closest celestial body, past, present and future.
