Big Moon Hong Kong is a site-specific video by Clea T. Waite. The work was commissioned by the Open Sky Gallery in Hong Kong for the ICC Tower LED façade as part of the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA), May, 2016.
Big Moon Hong Kong evokes the power, presence, and emotional gravity our Moon commands, a tangible Moon unfolding within Hong Kong's skyline. Created from actual lunar photographs, this piece includes views we can’t ever see from Earth, vistas seen only by probes and the astronauts – and perhaps the greater galaxy.
The ICC is the tallest building in Hong Kong and the largest screen in the world. The ICC rises 490 meters above sea level at 118 stories. The building façade is comprised of 77,000 square meters of LED’s.
