Created by Yingjie Bei and Yifan Hu at ITP, Moon Phases allows the audience to input any date and it will show the moon phase for that night (from the northern hemisphere's perspective).
The project started from Yingjie's very first processing sketch which included a 2D drawing for moon phases. From there, he expand the approach investigating a different perspective where audience can experience the moon phases' changing in a tangible and poetic way.
Created and performed by Yingjie Bei, Phantom Power is an exoskeleton analog synthesizer. Built as a man/machine interface instrument, the device is performed with hand gestures / screwdrivers by manipulating the circuit.
