Lunar Trails at the Dublin Science Gallery
Lunar Trails is an interactive installation, first commissioned by the Dublin Science Gallery for their GAME exhibition, running from November 2012 to the end of January 2013.

It features a full size arcade cabinet running the vintage 1979 game Lunar Lander. As you play the game, the path that you take is rendered on the wall with a large hanging drawing robot.

The trails build up to produce artworks that are solely created by the game players, and is a reflection of all their individual journeys to the surface of the moon.

In collaboration with engineer Paul Strotten, who designed and built most of the drawing machine, and graphic designer Val Head who created all the arcade game cabinet graphics.

With thanks to the BuildBrighton hackspace, the team at the gallery, Anna Debenham for equipment donation, and Kylie Wilson for lending me her camera. :)
