Stunning
 
All week we’ve been celebrating #‎NAIDOC‬ week with amazing objects from #IndigenousAustraliahttp://ow.ly/P5PQX

Pearl shell is found along the north-west Australian coast but was also traded thousands of miles inland. Pearl shell was prized for its iridescent qualities – its capacity to shine – which spoke to Indigenous aesthetic sensibilities. It was incorporated into decorative forms for personal adornment or ritual http://ow.ly/PqB27

Loving Jaque's work - especially as function becomes part of the fabric of the environment with an important message #savewater   #water   http://www.architectmagazine.com/videos/get-up-close-with-cosmo  +MoMA Learning 
MoMA PS1’s Young Architects Program is an annual opportunity for an innovative thinker to create a structure that will serve as the backdrop to the museum’s summer "Warm Up” concert series. Andrés Jaque’s “Cosmo,” an installation that doubles as a water-filtration system, was chosen as this year’s winning design. The summer concerts kicked off this past weekend on a rainy Saturday, but the crowds still turned out to enjoy the party and check out ...

Amazing that such things can still be found! #spacetravel   #spaceexploration   #Apollo11   #BuzzAldrin   #NeilArmstrong  www.moonandspace.com
 
Press release 17th September 2015
 
Historic space artefact found on eBay
Neil Armstrong’s lost moon boot mould found after four decades
 
In 1969 Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to walk on the moon. Sadly their historic boots were left on the moon and lost to the world. But now the original NASA mould that actually made one of those boots has been discovered on eBay.  
“This is the very mould that created man’s first footprints on the moon” says David Mather,industrial designer, space suit specialist and the mould’s new owner. Research has shown this to also be the same mold that produced one of the most iconic images of the moon landings - Buzz Aldrin’s footprint in the lunar dust.
Sold as surplus at the end of the Apollo missions in 1972 and lost for forty years, the mould appeared for sale on the auction website eBay.When David bought the mould he did not appreciate its true significance. Only when he started researching the history of the moon boot did he realise just how important a role this mould actually played in the success of the first moon landing.
The historic mould is now being used one last time for a limited edition presentation thatwill recreate the sole of Neil Armstrong’s actual moon boot in perfect detail from exactly the same silicone compound used by NASA in 1969. “This moon boot sole is probably the closest you and I will ever come to Neil Armstrong’s original boot that changed the world with “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” says David.“Today this is still such a powerful and inspiring symbol of what we can all achieve”.
David has also written a book exclusively to accompany the project with the assistance of the original moon boot manufacturer, ILC, and the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum.
