‘Lunatick’ at Moody Center for the Arts, Houston

Antony Gormley and Dr. Priyamvada Natarajan’s first virtual reality collaboration, Lunatick (2019) will be presented as part of ‘Moon Shot’ at the Moody Center for the Arts, Rice University, Houston.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 space flight,’Moon Shot’, opening September 20, features artworks responding to the moon landing by a selection of innovative artists working from 1969 to the present.

Lunatick VR (2019) uses data collected by NASA to map a real and interactive journey, leaving Earth to pass through atmosphere, stratosphere, the asteroid belt, and into outer space. This immersive experience treats the body as a vessel, free from gravity, in order to bring the haptic experience of space alive.

More information on ‘Moon Shot’. The exhibition is on view until 21 December 2019.
