moonmeme at Barnaby Festival 2016, Macclesfield
Savage Tower, St Michael’s Church Yard
17 June, 6:30-9:00pm
18 – 26 June, 10:00am-4:00pm
moonmeme (1992-ongoing), Liliane Lijn’s real-time computer simulation, has been commissioned by this year’s Barnaby Festival in Macclesfield and is presented in a special immersive installation within the confines of the 15th century Savage Tower at St Michael’s Church. In a work that demonstrates the interlocking of opposites, Lijn writes the single word SHE across the moon in letters large enough to be seen from earth. Over the course of the lunar monthly cycle, the movements of moon, earth and sun reveal that HE is contained within SHE and SHE emerges from HE.
The first 100 people visiting Savage Tower will be given a Lunar Birth Portrait – a print of SHE on the moon on the day of their birth.
