Sweden’s tiny, traditional red country houses, called stugas, could reach an audience of galactic proportions. Swedish artist Mikael Genberg and the country’s space program want to put a stuga on the moon.
Says Genberg on the project’s website, LunarResort.com,
If one individual person from a small worker’s town in a small country in northern Europe can engage enough people to realize such a seemingly far-fetched idea, then anyone can do anything,…Luna Resort is a way of inspiring and giving hope to people all over the world.
German photographer Daniel Weigert captured this image of a stuga on the moon, part of an advertising scheme to promote the program.
“What started as a funny idea became very well known through media, and as an advertisement gag they even created those little ‘sand-moons’ with little stugas next to Autobahns to advertise the idea,” says Weigert.
Genberg told BBC news, “We know where the Americans want to land people [on the moon] in 2020… It would be nice if we had a house for them when they come.”
