The female body fosters new life by giving birth. She is the embodiment of the cycle of life and ensures our survival on this planet. My choice is to send one of my photographs of a woman to the moon.

Women give life to this world. The female body fosters new life by giving birth. She is the embodiment of the cycle of life and ensures our survival on this planet.

My choice is to send one of my photographs of a woman to the moon.

A laser will reduce the picture to particles of matter and transform the image into stardust. This process creates the opportunity that it can be inserted into the Moon Gallery’s cube and travel with it to the moon.

Like stardust, she is an essential link in the chain of creation.
