Conception and Direction
Never Apart Gallery
Kelly Nunes and Kevin Moon
Permanent installation created to renew connection with our principle cosmological icon, enabling new perspectives, and eliciting sensations of reverence and diminutiveness.
A four-foot diameter sphere is suspended from the ceiling and covered by a slowly rotating video of the moon, mapped seamlessly by four projectors. One of four walls is made of glass, which has been tinted to give the appearance from outside that the moon is a hologram. Various angles of view from inside the room looking out, and outside the room looking in, create the illusion that there are multiple moons.
A forty-minute ambient piece supports the experience to extend the time of introspection.
