This one of four audiovisual performances in series exploring the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth. The lunar phases change cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth. The Moon's rotation is tidally locked by the Earth's gravity, therefore the same lunar surface always faces Earth. This face is variously sunlit depending on the position of the Moon in its orbit. In the first performance the sound and image is created by drawing the moon on large scale papper. Pressure sensor pics up the movment of pencil and creats sound. The projected image is created by live video feed, filming the whole performance.
