A touring project since Covid 19
Moonment is an ongoing touring installation project that aimed to showcase alone water. Inspired by a Chinese ancient poem “海上生明月，天涯共此时” by Tang poet Zhang Jiu Lin. It describes a surreal and poetic night-sea view that resonates with people through the veil of time through aluminum sheets and programmed fans. Inspired by the moon, a “heart” with beating sounds is created with metallic moving waves. People see the heart and hear the sound, thereby connecting to those they love beyond distances.
Moonment has been exhibited at Maryland HoCo Arts Council, Attleboro Arts Museum, Missouri State University, and Alabama Contemporary Art Center. The stops of the project serve as pins on a map, connecting the locals to who has seen the work regarding-less time and space.
