The Lumia Moon: Australia’s first-of-its-kind art installation turns day into night

If your in Sydney, then stop by the Lumia Moon exhibit, I am sure it will not fail to impress.

Sydney, Australia – 5 August 2013.  This August, the full moon will take on a very different form as it appears “life-like” at a pop-up art installation on Sydney’s George Street. The Lumia Moon will provide passers-by with a rare opportunity to take pictures of this magnificent satellite, using Nokia’s best low-light camera smartphone, the Lumia 925.

The Lumia Moon, which was conceived and designed by Australian creative collective – The Glue Society – is a topographically large-scale replica of the full moon suspended over a body of water, which mimics one of Australia’s most beautiful lunar vistas – Broome’s Staircase to the Moon.

Nokia is giving would-be photographers the opportunity to try out the low-light capabilities of the Lumia 925 and capture one of the trickiest objects to photograph – the moon.  

The most impressive photo of the Lumia Moon will be awarded an all-expenses paid trip to Broome, Western Australia, to shoot the real-life Staircase to the Moon, as well as receive a Lumia 925 smartphone.
The Lumia Moon art installation and pop-up experience will also provide a point of inspiration by showcasing a series of incredible low-light images taken across the country by well-known Australian photographers.
WHEN AND WHERE:
The Lumia Moon art installation will be open to everyone from 10am daily from Monday 12-25 August 2013, 399 George Street, Sydney CBD.


Check out Nokia.com.au or the Nokia Australia Facebook page from Monday, 12 August for further information and updates.

About the Nokia Lumia 925’s camera 
The Nokia Lumia 925’s PureView camera with Carl Zeiss lens enables you to capture clearer, sharper pictures and video, including the best low-light images. The camera also includes advanced image stabalising technology which reduces the camera shake so pictures do not appear blurry.
A new feature of the Lumia 925 is Nokia’s Smart Camera app allowing you to take 10 shots in quick succession with just one click. You can then change people’s faces, remove any unwanted objects or combine all 10 images into one ‘Action Shot’ showing the subject in different stages of movement.
