[ISEA2016] Artist Statement: Clea T. Waite — Big Moon In Hong Kong

Artist Statement

Animation, 2015, 2’12”, ISEA2016 Hong Kong Open Sky Project

The Moon represents many things, from the forefront of scientific exploration to the most ancient of archetypal myths. It inspires love poems and lunacy, influences werewolves and the tides. Big Moon Hong Kong evokes the power, presence, and emotional gravity our Moon commands. Created from archival astronomical data, the photos and sounds are courtesy of the Harvard Observatory, NASA, and the Soviet Space Program. This moon shows us views we can’t ever see from Earth, vistas seen only by probes and the astronauts – and perhaps the greater galaxy. Sound Design: Angelika von Chamier. Video:  vimeo.com/192018886
