As the oldest measure of time, the moon has come to compose a complex global inner experience by withholding the long ethnic memory of humans. Within the condensation of the innumerable amount of experiences projected upon our closest celestial body, we perceive the concept of eternal motion through the moon alongside an opposite temporal solidification. Chen Xiaoyi explores the archetypal images of the moon through a large scale video installation where her subject matter is showcased in eternal motion. The process of light projected is purposely placed in dialogue with large scale reflective surfaces, created to explore the concepts of infinite separation, aggregation, and the occasional coexistence of contradictions. The installation as a whole activates an “orderly state of non-causal relationships” in an attempt to achieve synchronicity within an instantaneous variable.
