Sanctuary is a time capsule of information art that will be sent to the Moon. It will land with ALINA, engineered by PT Scientists and Audi, on Taurus-Littrow, the site of the last manned Moon landing, in 2019.
It is a modern interpretation of the Universal Elements and Platonic geometry and draws motivation and inspiration from previous projects to commemorate human knowledge and individuality, such as the Pioneer plaque and Voyager's Golden Record and Arecibo Message.

THE WORLD'S FIRST GENOMENAUTS
The Sanctuary collection will contain fully sequenced and assembled female and male genomes. Our biological recipe.
