Creative Principle

The front side of this artwork shows a screen surface, and it demonstrates 30 images of the moon in various sizes and moving at different speeds. The backside of the artwork is covered by transparent glass, and the viewers are able to see the mechanical set-up with its multiple rotation devices. As the rotation devices connect and turn in collaboration with each other, the continual movement of the artwork seems to appear like an exquisite lunar dance.
