Description This project is to create an abstract imagery of natural textures. This Idea originated from our long-lasting interest in geometry and Nature. light, mirror, reflection, the moon, the ellipse. The abstract is mainly: the lunar phase (the wane and wax of the moon), and tides/ the movement of waves accordingly. The physical object is made of 4 parts: 12 mirror/acrylic glass, 123D-printed holders, the white sunken surface (mimicking the surface of the moon), and one round-shape wooden board supporting the surface and the holders. The final effects are achieved by mapping and projecting animated Processing sketch on the surface of the installation. Since we had imagined and prototyped the shape of the physical object before creating the sketch, when we were doing the sketch, we considered the shape of the physical object – the moon shape object. As the light gets projected and mapped onto the object, people will see the illusion of other shapes, due to the shape of the physical object, the reflection of the mirror/ acrylic glass, and the breaks of our physical structure.
