Lunar Trails

Creator: Seb Lee-Delisle and the Dublin Science Gallery


For the Dublin Science Gallery's unique GAME exhibition, Seb Lee-Delisle was comissioned to create an interactive art installation based off the classic arcade game, Lunar Lander. As guests approach the game and play the surprisingly difficult spacecraft-landing game, a remote machine tracks their movements in-game and draws their ships' paths on a black board behind the machine.

The intent was to show the brilliance of the game's physics and possibly also how despite having complete free will regarding how and where players could go, many of them chose similar paths. You can take a look at the charts progress from when the gallery opened to when it had hundreds of lines all over it in their video over here.
