Two full moon

Yu Zhang

TWO FULL MOON plays with historical cultural roots of the deep, yet transient connection between human desire and the moon, and reflects it through interactivity back into visual contents. The work TWO FULL MOON is rooted in layers of emotion and inherent humanness that intentionally contradicts or even rejects any notion of the Space Age. It is a result of artist’s experimentation with collecting, repurposing and locally grounding data streams of anonymous participation on the Internet. The data serves as input for the artwork that selectively represent both remote audience and artistic intent. While technology permeates, this work expresses the human desire to bond with nature without techne’s lens obscuring our being and feeling in the world.
