2019


On the night of a full moon, five pinhole cameras fitted with sheet film float in water-filled basins, photographing the moon for three hours. Each camera has two holes, which are spaced as far apart as human eyes. The cameras react to wind and are also encouraged to rotate by hand. The interplay of their circular movements on the water and the movement of the moon across the sky creates photographic records in the form of double orbits which overlap differently according to the spacing of the two eyes (holes).
