To The Moon and Back by Judy Suh

The installation references early cinema history, drawing elements directly from George Meliès's A Trip to the Moon, the first narrative film. The piece brings the moving image off the flat wall, out of the frame, spilling onto the floor and other found objects as a life-size video collage.

It is, at once, sculptural and temporal, therefore being tactile yet ephemeral simultaneously through the use of moving images on familiar objects.

The video content is a mixture of live action video and animation, but blurring the boundaries of the two and shedding light on its own process of creation through the handmade/hand- drawn elements.

Using techniques uniquely available to projection mapping, the piece offers a world that recalls the past and future at the same time, immersing the viewer into a magic-realist dream.

Fundamental for my motivation to create for the youngest audience is the perception of the child as equal to an adult, worthy of encountering arts in early years.
