Artist Statement: “It was a huge thrill for me to be brought into this project. To me, the Apollo program is one of the greatest things humanity has ever accomplished, and it was a privilege to be able to honor it in some small way. The amount of engineering and manufacturing that went into Apollo is hard to overstate, and as I was fixturing my machine tools to try and recreate a tiny piece of it, I felt connected to those engineers and machinists who did the same so many years ago. I’m sure I’ll never know what it’s like to walk on another world, but a project like this gives me hope that our grandchildren may again dream as big as our grandparents did.”
