I thought the project Lunar Surface was very interesting – this work has a hanging cloth with light projected onto it where the cloth would intersect an imaginary moon – it adjusts the light based on the position of the cloth due to its swinging, and a long exposure picture shows the moon in its entirety. I liked the way that this particular work brings another dimension into a room without adding any physical matter, just light, but showing a whole structure regardless. They have a lot of works where projections of light form three-dimensional objects, and this isn’t something that I’ve seen before.
I think that their work is presented very effectively. They create a unique atmosphere that enhances the work by providing an atmosphere that brings intrigue to the work but does not detract from it
