in addition to commemorating the structure itself, the moving projections aim to evoke the apollo 11 moon landing space flight, which marks its 50th anniversary this year and gave the pavilion its name. the installation also reflects the monochrome geometric aesthetic associated with the bauhaus school of art, which is also celebrating its centenary this year. this special event brings victor pasmore’s paintings to life and temporarily transforms the pavilion into a flowing structure of shape-shifting patterns.
