Description

‘The Dish’ pinpoints a geographic and historical snapshot through the medium of a brass, star map inlay. The brass dot’s simulate the exact stellar positioning of the Southern sky as viewed at precisely 12.56pm AEST on 21st July 1969 from the rural, central-west NSW town of Parkes.

At that exact moment the 64m-diameter radio telescope at CSIRO Parkes Observatory was to become immortalised for broadcasting the live TV footage of the moon landing back to an estimated 6 million people tuning in in anticipation back on earth.

The splayed legs of this Spotted Gum piece are a nod to the angled support struts of the lunar module, while the moon rise is located as a solitary aluminium marker.

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Lunar landing with the Parkes Radio Telescope still leading the way in mapping and exploring space today; one of the greatest scientific achievements in Australian history.
