During this live performance radio signals will be used to send images to the Moon from radio antennas in one of three locations around the world, Brazil, the UK or Switzerland. These signals will bounce off the Moon and return to Earth where they will be picked up by the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope. These moonbounced images will be presented in real time as they return from the Moon and at the end of the performance they will be printed and mailed back as postcards to the people who submitted them.
