Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Moon Goose Analogue

171

I met Agnes Meyer-Brandis several years ago at an International Aeronautics Congress conference, when this project was in it’s early stages. It’s great to see it come to full fruition. Quirky and brilliant! She has created a film/ installation based on a story from 1603 of a man who flies to the moon in a chariot pulled by geese. (For bird lovers such as myself, there’s the added bonus of some very cute geese, given astronaut names, involved…)

The film about the project is being released in 19 installments, available from the Art’s Catalyst website here:
