Summary
"'[E]xplores the moon as an archive of the entirety of its cosmic history ... grew from an installation Sarah created at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts while she was experimenting with casting colanders: the resulting paper spheres looked like fragments of satellites or space junk. And her hand-marbled paper resembled the swirling surface of planets seen through telescopes. And there was a gorgeous 1885 book called 'The Moon considered as a planet, a world, and a satellite.' And a podcast about the moon having no weather--no changing atmosphere--to disrupt its atomic material, so that its surface acts as a preserved record of its history. The road was built, and the project was born"--Women's Studio Workshop website, December 24, 2013
