Tsukimi No. 1 (Marble) & Tsukimi No. 1 (Bronze)

Every universal body is in constant motion that is governed by an individual heartbeat with its own rhythm. The pulse of the heartbeat can be measured mathematically and subsequently, each mathematical sequence becomes a system for understanding the relationship of the human being to the greater universe and to time itself.

Our moon, as it orbits the earth, seemingly changes appearance due to its position in relation to the earth and sun. From the position of the moon in the sky, man has devised a system to measure time in terms of days, months and years. This gives humanity a sense of motion, sequence and order in the universal scheme of things. Chronology gives us a way to take measure of our lives, structure objectives and assign weight and significance to our achievements and goals.

Tsukimi No. 1 is about the heartbeat of our solar system, using the image of the moon as it waxes and wanes through its monthly cycle. From new moon to full moon and back again, the sculpture implies an eternal rhythm of movement. The sequence is divided into sixteen movements, using gradually changing volumes of a sphere to identify each movement. Accordingly, the new moon and full moon are both represented by the full sphere. The first fifteen movements consist of Empress White marble whilst the new moon is set apart by being carved from Chinese Black marble.
