Lunar Art Capsule
Synergy Moon puts the art in artifact. Art Capsule will be delivering a payload of precious human artifacts to our only natural satellite. In conjunction with Google Lunar X PRIZE, we present an offer of open submission to anyone who wishes to be immortalized on the lunar surface. A hard drive containing all sorts of digital media and, hopefully, a cavity for tangible works of art will be installed on our rover. This rover will be jettisoned to the moon, ensuring not only a landmark victory for private enterprise, but also a triumph for all whose work will be selected to take the voyage. Whatever your background, whoever you are, wherever you live, Synergy Moon wants your voice to travel with us to the moon.
Humanity needs expression like it needs food and water. Artistic creativity represents an entire hemisphere of our brains. Baser instincts shout instructions through our cerebral cortexes, begging us to ask questions with difficult answers. Upon these muted directions we have fabricated a society with complexities and flaws as numerous as our own. In our strict adherence to the logical, our cultural obsession with technological reasoning, we lose that which makes us animal. Artists have no problem facing these issues, and resort thusly to expressive media to vent their frustrations against the prevailing façade of normalcy. In reality, we’re all artists. We should all defy the systems of conformity that support human life. Every new day is a new chance to live like never before, not just an opportunity to apply the same formula one more time. Art, in essence expression, is the only relief from our maddening world. It is lotion for our burning souls. The only real question is, what do you have to say?
The human impact upon outer space is negligible. Radio and television waves travel perpetually outward, gradually losing intensity in the faint dust of the void. At best, some of our strongest signals have reached the opposite edge of our galaxy. If our broadcasts do ever manage to reach other life, they demonstrate nothing more than simple knowledge of higher technology. To the galaxy around us, we might as well be television-watching, radio-listening robots who occasionally subject themselves to great bursts of radiation. With the exception of the Voyager spacecraft, which by their very design have a low success rate, there is no physical cosmic marker of the human spirit. The time has come to make the influence of the human race legendary. Our legacy should represent all that is human. We are passionate. We are inventive. We are curious. What expressive media speaks to you? Synergy Moon asks you to submit your work to our intergalactic Art Capsule.
Our Art Capsule project is a sampling of the passions of the human race. Everyone in every corner of the globe has unique contentions shaped by their family, their environment and their genetics. These opinions are what make our journey through life worthwhile. The universe is a giant spectacle of physics and light and gravity. But what good is a spectacle without an audience? An honest expression about the world around us not only validates human consciousness, it also validates time and space. Supernovas can only be beautiful if you have eyes to see them; sound can only be music if you have ears to listen; and words only become concepts when you comprehend them. Potential for artistic endeavor is infinite in outer space, and it’s time we set about fulfilling it.
Diversity will be key in crafting a genuine cross-section of the human species. The mark Synergy Moon will make on the moon will be an heirloom as longstanding and awe-inspiring as the Pyramids of Giza. We want submissions from all across the globe. In textbook altruistic form, we want art from every corner of the world. Let no economic, political or social barrier stand in your way. If you have something to say with what you have, Synergy Moon wants to be your megaphone. Contact us with your idea, and we’ll do everything we can to write it upon mankind’s history. Think your idea isn’t good enough? Let us decide that. In the meantime, you have nothing to lose by submitting your art. All artists including painters, sculptors, dancers, actors, photographers, filmmakers, carpenters, musicians, writers, etc. are encouraged to apply. It is a renaissance we live in, and only a fool would stand idly and watch it go by. A wise man would contribute to Art Capsule and install his legacy upon the heavens.
Art Capsule will be a very powerful educational tool. Primary and secondary school students will find ample motivation to produce work when they know there’s a chance it could be displayed on the moon. There is a distinct possibility that we will have the capability to project digital art on the surface. Who wouldn’t want to see their art Video Jockeyed on a lunar landscape? And let us not overlook the fact that a capsule filled with art on the moon is a glorious symbol of progress. Leaving an interpretive mark on extra-terrestrial terrain is the epitome of pioneering. Who else should we put on the forefront of the future than the youth generation? Children and students of all ages are being asked to offer their artistic output to Art Capsule.
At Synergy Moon we nurture an intergalactic perspective. We face the universe head-on in its entirety. On this scale, the differences between men and women on Earth are trivial. To the universe, economics is invisible and politics could be mistaken for a collective instinct toward organization. We do not care if you are poor, privileged, isolated or overlooked. Do not let your current situation prevent you from submitting your work to Art Capsule. No matter what your status or you location may be, Synergy Moon values your effort. Chances are, if your voice is forcibly mute, you have all the more reason to be heard. With Synergy Moon on your side, no obstacles can stand between you and your artistic dreams.
This is only the beginning of what we to offer. After Synergy Moon has opened the doors to space for the benefit of public endeavor, human exploration in the solar system will skyrocket. An Art Capsule on every planet? Beyond? Art Capsules sent to planets in other solar systems? There is no reason to think these options won’t be possible. The future of creative output looks very promising. Keep in touch with us so you don’t miss any of the exciting opportunities constantly being offered through Synergy Moon.
