LUNA2 belongs to a series of two pieces.
LUNA1: video art piece.
LUNA2: site-specific installation.
The works of the LUNA series deal with the hybridization between the virtual and the physical planes and their impact on perception of time in relation to natural cycles, specifically to man’s obsession to manipulate his environment through technology.
When natural cycles that govern the space one inhabits begin to be susceptible to manipulation and distortion, it’s because that space stops being only physical to become hybrid.
In these works the behavior of the moon is distorted and manipulated through three types of devices: virtual, physical and metaphysical. The devices used add dimensions that generate a new or alternative time-space.
In LUNA2 a device made of mirrors adds the possibility of an additional spatial dimension that reveals the hybridization produced as well as the reflective and passive condition of the moon.
The audio in both pieces is presented as a metaphysical dimension that is added to the space-time dimensions which is created from a sound texture generated from a series of nomenclatures of the moon that were used in ancient rites as “technological tools” to manipulate lunar influences.
