Dubai: New exhibition opens

(MENAFN) A children's play museum in Dubai has made an imaginative copy of the Moon for a new fair.

The inventive piece of art is called Museum of The Moon, and was inspired by the images taken of the lunar surface by NASA. The five meter long artwork was executed by Luke Jerram, a British artist, and is hung at OliOli in Al Quoz.

The sphere light up inside a dark room, for it is internally lit, making the experience more engrossing. Jerram also added a melody composed by the award-winning composer Dan Jones, who is known for composing for BBC series and feature movies.

In order to make the experience even more immersive, there are mirrors around the artwork, giving the optical allusion that there are several moons, and OliOli have even taken extra measure and provided a VR action that permits guests to drive on the Moon's exterior in a rover.

The children's play museum has contributed by planning interactive games and a craft section that is lunar themed, and is setting up a yoga and meditation session under the Moon.
Jerram's work will be on display till April 2021.
