moonABC

2016
1min. 43sec.

moonABC is a continuation of my exploration of darkness as a space that offers contemplation and meditation. My urge is to create a  moment of solitude that offers comfort.

The video moonABC is a stop motion video based on the moon alphabet. Over the course of two years I have created an image based font, with the use of a camera lens and the light of the full moon. Each letter, a one second photograph, traced and captured by the movement of my hands. Using the moon as the agent of communication, I set out to explore the universal human condition of emotion.

Within this work, I pose rhetorical questions, referring to science while addressing emotions at the same time. They are poetic reflections in an increasingly technology-based world.
