The Moon by Nosigner

themoon1

The so called Supermoon – the lunar occurance on March 19th in which the moon appeared 14% bigger and 30% brighter – was both an event and a non-event. What it didn’t do, as many have hypothesized would be a result of increased gravitational forces, was cause large-scale natural destruction. What it did end up doing, in an ironic turn of events, was shine down beautifully on the people of Japan, inspiring them to believe in and have hope for rebuilding what they had lost just over a week ago.

The moon, whether it’s in age-old fairy tales or modern-day anime, has held a revering spot in the Japanese psyche. And in all its glowing symbolism it did something else: it inspired Nosigner to create a topographically-accurate LED light simply titled, “The moon.” It was created based on data retrieved from the Japanese lunar orbiter spacecraft Kaguya, appropriately named after the legendary Japanese moon princess Kaguya-hime. Stunning, is it not?
