    An area of the moon's far side revealed in the images was named Mare Mechta, sometimes referred to as Mare Desiderii, or the Sea of Dreams. This was later found to consist of numerous dark craters in the South Pole-Aitken Basin and a smaller area that became known as Mare Ingenii, or the Sea of Ingenuity. As such the Sea of Dreams is no longer recognised by the International Astronomical Union and has passed into the realm of shadows.

Accidental Journey (2010) is a book work featuring images and texts elliptically relating to the moon and lunar exploration. Its centrepiece is a serendipitous encounter with a memento from the Apollo 11 mission at an observatory near Dublin, a small Irish flag that travelled onboard the spacecraft and for unknown reasons ended up back in Ireland.
