Moon rock found

Printouts of moon rocks are being found across downtown Chicago. On the back of each printout reads:

You Found a Moon Rock! This printout is the exact same size of an actual lunar sample brought back from the surface of the moon. Take a photo of your moon rock and tag it #moonrockfound I will comment on your photo with additional information about this specific rock!

The idea for this project sprouted out of my “Star Wraps” public art series where I take NASA images of nebulas, print them out into strips, and wrap them around objects in public spaces. The results are absolutely beautiful. The sense of scale from wide nebula to small object on Earth is absolutely immense. But I really wanted to leverage something in outer space we are all familiar with–the moon.

Placing the moon as public art would be something everyone can relate to. We see the moon almost every night.
