Zero Gravity Lunar Library
A memorable Virtual Reality experience set on-board a space-shuttle version of Wakefield’s mobile library van
The spectacular shuttle features books and book reviews contributed by library-goers based around the question “Which book would you take to the Moon?”.
It also showcases films from local people – including musician Bill Nelson and performance poet Toria Garbutt – about their relationship with the moon and uncovers what Wakefield was like in the year 1969 when Apollo 11 made its historic mission.
Zero Gravity Lunar Library saw well over 10,000 participants experiencing the work 'live' in large scale projection and in VR to amazing response.
Zero Gravity Lunar Library was commissioned as part of ‘Festival of the Moon’ featuring Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon in 2019. Commissioned as a Creative Challenge by Wakefield Council.
The project ran from June to September 2019.
"Lovely people doing fantastic projects, loved Zero Gravity Lunar Library so much!"
