Laurie Anderson has crafted a new art installation for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. Created for the museum’s new exhibition, “The Moon: From Inner Worlds to Outer Space,” the piece is a virtual reality experience that aims to allow viewers to explore the surface of the moon—but not just any moon. In an interview with The New York Times, Anderson “hinted that participants would be able to explore a version of the moon that had been turned into a nuclear waste dump” and that one section of the piece will offer “what she described as an “out-of-body” experience.”
