GLEX 2021 & ISS Payload Gallery

DBE - A Message from Earth - aboard NG-17

We are happy to share that Moon Gallery is part of the Global Space Exploration Conference (GLEX) 2021 in St.Petersburg between 14-19 June 2021. As humanity expands into the solar system, so will art!

Moon Gallery proposes the first permanent extraterrestrial art gallery extending our cultural dialogue beyond Earth, to the Moon, and into deep space. For this mission, Moon Gallery selected art pieces that carry important values for humanity, not only presently on Earth,  but also for future multi-planetary societies. And DBE - A Message from Earth does exactly this!

In February of 2022 Moon Gallery will carry out its first space flight aboard NG-17 and dock its artistic payload at the International Space Station. “ISS Payload Gallery” shown in St. Petersburg celebrates this endeavour and exhibits a collection of the first shortlisted artefacts and their prototypes at AIR Gallery before dazzling its very first audience in space.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with ITMO University - Art Science department.

The event will conclude with a mini-conference and a workshop instigating dialogue and fueling interdisciplinary exchange between Space Sciences, Technology and Arts. The event is supported by the delegates of GLEX 2021 - Global Space Exploration Conference and IAF (International Astronautical Federation) Technical Activities Committee for the Cultural Utilisation of Space (ITACCUS). 

ASEF Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Sunita Williams!

DBE - A Message from Earth - the award for a great astronaut. 

The astronaut, with Slovene roots, Captain Sunita Williams, is this year's recipient of the ASEF Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to space exploration and science!

Captain Williams is an extraordinary person, a woman who is a true record holder amongst space travelers and therefore also our inspiration!

We are very honored that ASEF, the American Slovenian Education Foundation has awarded her the "DBE 528 Hz - Message from Earth" fragrance, to mark this special occasion. The DEB - data bank of emotions fragrance,  strives to alleviate astronauts of feelings of isolation in outer space by catalyzing for the Earthing in them to stay alive; keeping them in contact with Earth and the Earthing that they are.

Our sincere congratulations to Captain Sunita Williams for her awe-inspiring achievements! 

Dear Captain Willimas, we wish for you to stay connected to our planet Earth, in spite of wherever your next journey into outer space may take you!


International Collaborative Art Work

DBE – A Message from Earth – presented at a Gallery of ideas worth sending to the Moon

At Leiden University, Moon Gallery built a bridge to space. This symbolic bridge - "THE BRIDGE" connects art with the Innovation Center and the Field. The Field represents the Earth with a presentation of artworks, and the Innovation Center symbolizes the Moon, where the Moon Lander will take, among other things, a panel with 99 mini cubes, each containing an artistic idea.

Moon Gallery: The Bridge exhibits 36 micro-art objects selected so far, 9 prototypes and 7 posters representing universal values and human desires imagined and materialized by the artists of the Moon Gallery. Among them is the fragrance #DBE - A Message from Earth, soaked in a piece of clay, with which the authors wanted to influence future space travelers and keep them connected to Earth.

You are invited to attend the online opening of Moon Gallery: Bridge at Leiden University Innovation Center on March 19 from 11 am to 1 pm. Join via Zoom:

You are also invited to participate in the virtual workshop EuroMoonMars, Earth, Space & Innovation EMMSI Workshop (Hybrid) from 16to 19 March. The workshop program with interesting speakers can be found at

The last day of the event will be dedicated to the Moon Gallery and the opening of the exhibition at the Innovation Center. At about 10 am you can also listen to Eva Petrič's presentation "Art in Space - Art for Space".

DBE – A message from Earth testing for the ability of fragrance to teleport us emotionally and psychologically.

In the time of deep space exploration becoming a reality and the conditions on our planet Earth making human life more difficult to sustain, setting up human bases (to investigate life from other perspectives and providing a context within which to perform various experiments) on the Moon and on the International Space Station are becoming not just a reality but also a necessity.

The European Space Agency (ESA) has included the fragrance DBE - A Message from Earth in the EMMIHS-III space research project. EMMIHS-III was the third EuroMoonMars analog mission at the International Moonbase Alliance base at HI-SEAS base in Hawaii, which took place from 18th January to 1st February 2020. The six-member expedition, led by scientist Marc Heemskerk, focused on sociological, psychological, biological, physical, and geological aspects. With the experiment, they strived to find out how the smell of DBE - A Message from Earth affects the emotions of participants.

The nomadic nature of humans, existing since the beginning of history and extending nowadays even into outer space, has been the main inspiration behind the DBE – Data Bank of Emotions collection of fragrances. With DBE we want to preserve and nurture the message from Earth even in deep space, and through its fragrance DBE- A MESSAGE FROM EARTH, we want to remain in touch with the Earthling in us, wherever we are
