Destination Moon, 2019

looped hand spliced edit of super 8 footage from ‘Destination Moon’ (1950), one of the first science fiction films to consider the practical scientific and engineering challenges of space travel and to speculate on what a manned expedition to the Moon would look like. All the images of the moon have been edited out by hand, and only the fragments of text remain, forever anticipatory.
