19. ADAM DAVID BROWN
Text and image are brought together to broadcast the idea of moonlight as an idealized, celestial object. The sculpture at the heart of the installation makes use of a carefully chosen vintage (1970’s) typeface, which is filled with a detailed photograph of the full moon. The conceptual loop at play in the logic of this installation is that sunlight reflecting off of the moon has been captured photographically and is now being broadcast once again; this time as moonlight reflecting on the water.
