The Wax of the Wane
Duration: 9′ 30″ Year: 2014 Visuals by Amanda Justice
The Wax of the Wane for soprano, actor, and fixed media is the story of an imaginary episode inspired by the early NASA space programs Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. Given a mission to do exploratory drilling on the lunar surface to locate ice deposits and analyze them in order to see if the Moon could be used as a water depot for more extensive space exploration missions, our Astronaut finds he feels a degree of trepidation.
