Full Moon Series

This AR art series celebrates the beauty of each year's full moon. Some pieces are AR wearables, letting you wear the full moon's glow. Others are interactive experiences where you can explore virtual landscapes that change with each lunar, revealing hidden stories and mysteries.

The moon, our celestial twin, has held profound historical importance for humanity, shaping our understanding of the cosmos and influencing our planet's rhythms. Earth, as we know it, could not exist without the moon, given its role in stabilizing our axial tilt and governing tides. Since ancient times, humans have gazed at the night sky in awe, weaving myths and legends around the celestial bodies they observed. I hope to contribute to this storytelling tradition using today's tools. These AR creations allow participants to immerse themselves in the stories, bridging the gap between ancient mythologies and cutting-edge technology.

Fun note: The moon materials (texture, 3D model, height map) were taken directly from NASA data. In fact, they have a useful, fun collection of various cosmic elements available for download.

January: The Wolf Moon

The first Full Moon of the year, known as the Wolf Moon, derives its name from the howling of wolves. In the Anglo-Saxon tradition, it is also referred to as the Moon After Yule.

May: The Flower Moon

May’s full moon, the “Flower Moon” will be the closest full moon of the year, making it one of two super moons in 2021. Not only that, but this month’s full moon also coincides with a total lunar eclipse! As you may have guessed, the “Flower Moon” is named after the beautiful flowers brought on by spring showers. The designation can be traced back to the Algonquin people.

December: The Cold Moon

December’s full Cold Moon rose on Saturday, December 18, 2021. It’s known as a “Micromoon”, the opposite of a “Supermoon.” This simply means that the full moon is at its farthest point from Earth (rather than the nearest point). Its designation as the “Cold Moon” comes from the Mohawk tribe and conveys the chilly conditions of this time of year, when cold weather truly begins to grip us.
