Moon Lantern

This photo was taken to launch of the first Mascon Festival of the Moon 1 at Sydney Park Brick Kilns.

I made the moon in the middle of the night at Shepard Street Studios, Sydney, Australia, with a group of young mathematicians. We had a hard time trying to make it work with. By 2am I rang my friend Kath Ellis, who I had met on a woodwork course for women to ask if she could she help resolve the problem. She got on her motorbike and came over.

As always she worked it all out and the next morning the moon was taken to Pine Street Studios to be papered. It was then hung from a crane in front of the Brick Kilns, for the trapeze artists to play with…
