Love Letter to a space rock is an artistic approach to a scientific dialogue on research about meteoritic in Mexico. A series of art pieces, audiovisuals, photographs and text, are used to create a declaration of love to the Allende meteorite stone, found in 1969 in Mexico. Conceived as a multimedia art installation, this project aims to use tools of contemporary art to present important information about meteoritic science and the importance of Mexican meteorites for world science. Designed for non-specialists in science, love letter to a space rock features a multimedia exhibition, lectures, and workshops around the topic, with the aim of bringing the audience to scientific knowledge through unconventional artistic dynamics.
