New Project – The Moon

In a dark bar, a pool player is racking the balls, preparing for a game. On the wall behind him, is a video projection map installation of the Moon. It is getting eclipsed with a shadow starting to move across it.

Got a new projection mapping piece installed this week at the Lone Star – The Moon. Working with Charlie Evans and Mark D Powers, we picked an image of the moon. I made the projection layout and they went to town painting it on the wall. 3 different shades of going from medium gray to bright white. The first animation I’ve made is an eclipse. It takes 7.5 minutes for the shadow to move from side to side, which is the typical length of totality during a lunar eclipse and the whole loop is 8.5 minutes long. Below is a 35 second time lapse.
