The Moonolith is a Monument to the Moon and the Stars, devoted to the void, the passing of time and to the urban dweller. Its surface reflects star constellations and Moon phases as a special public clock. It makes a symbolic connection between the Earth’s satellite, stars and people; it declines celebrating the past, it reflects the world during the day and Space at night as a monument and as a reminder of the “here and now”.
Moonolith is a new sound and space installation from the artist’s ongoing Nonument series. Nonuments are a series of Utopian objects in public space carrying a strong symbolic message in a physical, mental and virtual space. The Nonument series reflects the artist’s research of the meaning and development of monuments and the phenomenology of collective memory.
The opening event included a special sound composition designed by the French sound artist Fraction. The Moonolith is placed on the Republic Square in front of the Slovenian parliament, where it establishes a symbolic connection between Politics, Finance, History and Trade. The dark reflective surface mirrors its surroundings and distorts its reflection. On its surface we thus see the omniverse of parallel reflections.
