Lunar Module shown at Salisbury International Arts Festival



We took our Lunar Module to the Family Fiesta at Bemerton Heath one of the events of the Salisbury International Arts Festival. One of the themes of the Festival is commemoration of fifty years since the Moon Landing. By complete serendipity one of the volunteers was as Carl Cooke from Arizona (see below). His grandfather was a jig builder for the actual module  five decades ago. He inscribed a silver plate to add to our module. The last image below, continuing the lunar theme  shows a tight rope walker  at the Fiesta on the wire of half moon which oscillated like a rocking chair.

Project at Salisbury Festival



We are delighted to be commissioned to create an installation for the Family Fiesta at Bemerton Heath on May 25th, one of the events of the Salisbury Festival. Creative Wiltshire, the organizers, have chosen as two themes for the Festival  events that happened respectively fifty and  thirty years ago: the Moon Landing and the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Above is a sketch of our idea for a lunar module that we will create for Bemerton Heath. The original in 1969 looked like random bits and pieces stuck together so a perfect subject for a sculpture made with recycled materials.We are covering both themes of the Festival as Scraptor Paul Boswell will also be one of the muralists working on panels round the city inspired by the theme of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.
