concept: after being perplexed by the assignment (to combine
a natural phenomenon with an unnatural object) for a long time,
i decided that i wanted to do something about light, framing
artificial light sources within the context of
natural light (the sun, moon, stars). i got to thinking about
nighttime, and how in the modern age, we use streetlights and signs
to guide us, perhaps in the same way that people in ancient times
used the stars and moon and planets in the sky for navigation.
i wanted to take pictures of stars in the nighttime sky,
but my little digital camera wasn't up to the task.
so in this piece, neon signs and streetlights are the "stars"
which guide you on your way to the moon.
how to use: to journey forward toward the moon,
move the mouse pointer in a clockwise direction around the center
of the applet window. move in the opposite direction
to move backward.
