Museum of Lunar Surface Findings

WIJK AAN ZEE—28 August 1999. During the process of digging up the beach for First Woman on the Moon tons of garbage and broken glass were revealed in the sand, causing a great hazard for all the kids frolicking on the moon with us. The objects were spontaneously collected and instantly displayed, making for the impromptu Museum of Lunar Surface Findings to which the public contributed all day and which I loosely organized according to their shapes , color and material. Rope, shoes, plastics, food cans from near and afar reveal the way debris travels long-distance over the oceans, and that wherever people go, nature does not remain un-spoilt for long
