About

To the Moon is a VR installation artwork created by artists Laurie Anderson and Hsin-Chien Huang to commemorate the 50thanniversary of the moon landing.

This new work uses images and tropes from Greek mythology, literature, science, sci-fi, space movies and politics to create an imaginary and fabulous new moon.

During the 15-minute VR experience, the viewer is shot out from earth, walks on the surface of the moon, glides through space debris, flies through DNA skeletons and is lifted up the side and then thrown from a lunar mountain. The aim is to allow the viewer to literally walk into a work of art.

You know the reason I really love the stars? It’s that we cannot hurt them.

We can’t burn them. We can’t melt them or make them overflow.

We can’t flood them. Or blow them up or turn them out.

But we are reaching for them. We are reaching for them.

Laurie Anderson is one of America’s most renowned and daring creative pioneers. Best known for her multimedia presentations, innovative use of technology and first-person style, she is a writer, director, visual artist and vocalist who has created ground breaking works that span the worlds of art, theatre, and experimental music.

To The Moon VR experience commissioned by The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark; The National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taipei, Taiwan; and National Taiwan Normal University.
