Moon Arrow is a mechanical sculpture which continually points at the moon. It is designed for temporary installations at shorelines and other locations and filmed in time lapse to capture its motion in relation to the tides and people's activities.
What inspired you to make this project?:
I created this project as an Arts and Humanities Resident with the NYC Urban Field Station (NYC Parks & US Forest Service) to explore the urban environment as a natural place. The moon is important in New York City because it is one of the few celestial bodies we can reliably see and it has physical influence in our city in the form of tides. I've been interested in paces of time in different contexts, and created Moon Arrow as a way to perceive the pace of time of the moon in relation to the activities of people.
