This week Hamburg’s urban intervention and critical lifestyle blog Urbanshit reports about a great project made by the Russian artist Leonid Tishkov. The project called ‘Private Moon’ was executed back in 2004 and 2005 but I never got to know about it before this week.

Last year the light installation was showed in Linz while the city was European Capital of Culture. I don’t know to what extent this moon can be hired for party’s and manifestations, but I would love to order myself one.
