‘Scramble for the Moon’ – Margaux Hendriksen [FR]Film
Scramble for the Moon is a speculative and critical design project that question those “ready-made” dreams created by the space mining industry. The aim is to understand what are the real motivations behind and interrogate our destructive systems of exploitation and colonisation. For the creation of this project Margaux collaborated with experts in planetary science to visualise what are the materials on the Moon, what could they be used for and where exactly they are located. Based on those data, she created a visual of how the Moon might look like in a future where a private company has monopolised most of the lunar resources.
