A playful exploration of our relationship to the Moon
Dates: February 2019
The Moon watches from a distance, our constant companion in eternal orbit. A relationship that stretches over hundreds of thousands of miles. A bond across time and space. Experience the push and pull of our Companion:Moon through movement, sound and place as Coney invites you on an intimate exploration of the Moon’s enduring connection to our planet Earth.
COMPANION: MOON was an experience created by Coney and commissioned by the Natural History Museum which took place alongside Luke Jerram’s artwork Museum of the Moon. Inspired by Jerram’s artwork and conversations with Natural History Museum scientists, visitors of all ages joined in or observed as multiple art forms and science combined in a beautiful, gentle and open encounter exploring the relationship between our planet and the Moon.
