For his solo project at the Art Institute, Finch has created a solar-powered "lunar lander module" that uses energy from sunlight to power a geodesic dome-shaped object——a "buckyball" that resembles the carbon molecules named for visionary architect Buckminster Fuller——positioned on top of the lander. Installed on the open-air Bluhm Family Terrace, Lunar will glow during the evening hours the color of moonlight——the exact light measured from the full moon over Chicago in July 2011. On glow through April 8, 2012.
