Part-Time Moon

16mm film in 2k digitization / 6'21" / (2021)

Part-Time Moon documents a fantasy of an artificial moon that is created inside the artist’s studio. The film is initiated from glazing over on a filmmaking tool. Compared to the real moon, the part-time moon carries an anthropomorphic character: it moves, changes luminosity and color on its own. The camera chases after this organic moon from far to close. It dances, playing hide-and-seek with the camera. The film takes the apparatus usually behind the camera back to the front of the lens, producing a visual-driven narration which is out of the norm.
