half moon rising was a site-specific sound, sculpture and video installation commissioned by the Sharadin Art Gallery located at Kutztown University. This work combines abstract sculptural forms comprised of industrial and found materials, light and shadow, multiple loudspeakers and three projected videos. The sound and moving images animate the gallery space and immerse the visitor in an ever-changing sensory-rich environment. This piece is episodic in nature and allows viewers to move through many vantage points while accumulating their own associations and correspondences. Our starting point was the tension felt, at times in one's life, between yearning and fulfillment, struggle and calm, aspiration and disappointment, vigor and limitation.
