The moon, like the one we often see with our eyes or in photographs, is flat.But we know it is a sphere. However,no one has ever seen a three-dimensional moon as a globe. The three-dimensional appearance of the moon exists only in our understanding. This work focuses on a moon, giving one an illusion that moon is actually three-dimensional like how we conceptually understand it.
一个月亮,就像我们平时用眼睛和在照片上看到的一样,它是平面的。我们知道它是一个球形,但是谁也没像看见一个地球仪一样看过立体的月亮。它立体的样子只是存在于我们的理解之中。这件作品呈现一个月亮,如果你用一只眼睛盯着看,在某些时刻你仿佛能看见那个只存在于你理解中的“立体月亮”。

 

Have you ever seen the moon? I mean, personally.We prefer to draw a flat moon rather than a three-dimensional one. We have no such a visual experience since we have never seen a three-dimensional moon with our eyes. I think that we must have an eye in Beijing and the other in New York if we expect to see a three-dimensional moon, and it definitely entails a giant head.
你有见过月亮么?我是说亲眼看见。我们画月亮,都喜欢把月亮画成平面的,不会把它画成这样。因为我们从来没有通过双眼看到过立体的月亮。没有立体的视觉经验,我在想如果要看到立体的月亮需要一只眼睛在北京一只在纽约,那一定需要一个巨大的脑袋。
