“It’s incredible to think that only 50 years ago we first landed on the moon which has been our loyal companion in the night sky since the beginning of time as we know it. I believe that one day soon when we have conquered the limitations of speed the planets will become like new countries in our universe and we will begin a new chapter of space travel and planetary colonisation. Through this all I hope planet Earth will always remain our home – safe and secure.”
– BEN MOORE
One Small Step is a unique exhibition featuring 12 leading artists – in-line with the 12 men who have walked on the moon since 1969 – who will each transform an astronaut helmet into a work of art. Participating artists include Anish Kapoor, Joana Vasconcelos, D*Face, Mr. Brainwash, Bran Symondson, UnSKilled Worker, Philip Colbert, Hayden Kays, Ben Eine, Dan Baldwin, Alison Jackson and Chris Levine.
Curated by Ben Moore, all proceeds from the sale of the One Small Step helmets via an online auction at Paddle 8 will go to MAG (Mines Advisory Group) whose mission is to clear landmines and unexploded bombs from conflict-affected communities, where one small step can be the difference between life and death.
Thank you to Ben Moore, for inviting us to come and capture this stunning and powerful exhibition.
