Artist: Habitat Media (Australia)
Five, four, three, two, one.... Vivid Sydney, we have lift off. Habitat Media have created an out of this world experience for people of all abilities. From the moment visitors sit in the wheelchair-accessible lunar buggy, an immersive audio-visual sequence takes them to the moon and back. Blast off from NASA’s base and rocket into orbit, then land on the moon’s surface where you’ll see our tiny blue planet from a very different perspective. Take off into space once more and land safely back on earth.
Using sound, light and space imagery, this ‘room’ installation uses projection technology to evoke a sense of discovery that honours the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. The experience is based on the concept of a skating rink and each Moon Mission takes approximately three minutes.
Working within the theme of a ‘world of inclusion’, Habitat Media have collaborated with young people with disabilities to design the flags that adorn the moon buggy.
