The men in the moon

Chinese sculptor and artistic-dissident Ai Weiwei, together with the Danish-Icelandic sculpture artist Olafur Eliasson, have created an interactive project called 'Moon' – offering users a virtual platform to 'paint' its entire surface.

To your own direction, a set of black and white hands move across a small square canvas on which you can put any inscription or drawing. Once you are finished, you will see it on the surface of the moon lined with dozens of others. 

Ai Weiwei and Olafur Eliasson believe that co-creation such as this unites people and, therefore, changes the world "at the macro and micro levels" on the project's site.

We have already made our mark, what will you write on yours?
