Our Moon will be a friendly, watchful eye over the town centre this Winter.
Hannah Fox and Jason Threlfall create this new light artwork for D-Lux 2018.
Our Moon is a new projected animation piece for Dumfries generated from the facial expressions and stories of Dumfries residents. The ever present but ever changing moon will watch over the town and its people during the Burns Night celebrations this year.
Motion tracking technology is used to digitise the facial movements of a series of volunteers of all ages. Their expressions are then used to animate a computer
generated model and create Our Moon, who will smile, blink, frown and observe.
Thursday 26th and Friday 26th January from 5pm
Town Centre - above River Island, by the fountain.
