Lift off for Open Moon Art!

Open Moon´s Design Commoonity brings art into stratosphere and back.

SPACEgarage Team Next Saturday, 11th of December 2010, 4pm, our Open Moon Design Commoonity launches their new ArtProject SPACEgarage.


launch pad location:


Görlitzer Park, Berlin, Germany

Two weather ballons will send SPACEgarage´s artworks into stratosphere. SPACEcapsule and portbunny are the first mascots travelling into low gravity by their own. They will glide back to earth and fortunately return safely to Berlin.

Lunik & Ranger stay grounded. This time for the testcrew…Sorry, guys!

Mission Executive and Flight Manager is Neven Dološ, Head of c-base Open Moon.

This event ignites SPACEgarage, starting artprojects with scientifical background – A producer´s platform giving stage for exchanging inspiration within scientific minds and visional speculation.

At LIFT OFF Event two analog objects will be set off unusual conditions (for their initial terms ;) and turned over to an unsure welcome. Go for the sky! Return safely! Do you find home? What do you find then?

Open Moon Activity

Past weeks were busy ones for Open Moon. We ran a booth on LinuxTag in Berlin and a Breakout Session on Future Forum Dresden as well and sent a competent EVA team to the ILA 2010. Our efforts have been rewarded: Commoonities are growing and the project is gaining speed.

Here is our updated official booklet

and some clips and fotos of our events:

A small reel showing the modified moon rover `c-rove´ performing some lunar action. This animation was on display on our booth at LinuxTag 2010 in Berlin and generated a lot of interest.

Open Moon Communicator Alex gives a statement of efforts and outcome of LinuxTag 2010 in Berlin.

Open Moon Design Comoonity is just experimenting with 3D-animations. This is the first test. Please be sure to use anaglyph red(left) cyan(right) glasses to watch this clip correctly.

Open Moon EVA-Team´s visit on Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung Berlin
brought us this Photo Album.

“Last, but not least”: A summarize of Open Moon´s Breakout Session “Community into Space” by Ranga Yogeshwar, host of the Future Forum Dresden.

Extraterrestrial support!

Our team was unexpectedly added up.

Lunik (green) and Ranger (blue) are our new mascots!

They will guide us the right way up to the stars! We say `Yeah, welcome!`

Our new heroes are named after the first russian and american probe landed on moon. On 1959/09/13 Lunik was the first artificial device ever touching lunar surface. Ranger followed on 1962/04/26 with a touchdown on the dark side of the moon.

Future Forum Dresden

Open Moon is busy next week!

Besides LinuxTag 2010 we are invited to the 4th Future Forum Dresden, where we perform a breakout session and talk about open innovation and how communities handle complex projects. The Future Forum investigates new spaces in life and business and wants to work out ways how changes and challenges can be faced.

A good chance to attract Ray Kurzweil and Sir Tim Berners-Lee to be part of our session between their speaks.
