Moon Viewing Platform is an interdisciplinary public installation that will transform an inhospitable and disused stretch of open-air land into a large-scale performance/gathering space featuring regular acts of caring, a stage, and building-sized nighttime video projections featuring an episodic series of short films. The garden/installation references the karesansui (Japanese dry landscape garden), as it becomes a set for a series of short videos and musical performances, inviting audiences to enter another world through the senses and the imagination and provides the opportunity to engage in intimate commemorative gatherings that celebrate compassion, creativity, and community as essential components of human life.
