Le Voyage dans la Lune
by Daniela De Paulis
International Journal of Arts and Technology (IJART), Vol. 7, No. 4, 2014

Abstract: Le Voyage dans la Lune is a video work inspired by the homonymous film by French director George Méliès and realised by visual artist Daniela de Paulis, in collaboration with CAMRAS, a team of radio enthusiasts based at the Dwingeloo radio telescope in The Netherlands. The video is composed of 26 'moonbounced' images of the lunar phases, offered for the project by British astronomer Michael Oates (Manchester Astronomical Society). The images have been transmitted to the moon by a radio station in Brazil and have been received back a few seconds later by the Dwingeloo radio telescope. The technology required for the project is called Visual Moonbounce and has been developed by the CAMRAS team and the artist especially for a series of creative applications.
