The Media on the Moon
A projected media moon installation about interconnecting two entities of massive impact to society; the moon and the online media web. In The Media on the Moon there is an attempt to further connect the two entities by having them strengthen and depend on each other. Conversations (tweets) on the event can be sent and displayed on the installation, causing the appearance of the digital moon to grow. The result is an online organic discussion between strangers, who have all converged around the ever-growing virtual moon.
