Taro Shinoda at White Sands National Monument
The second scheduled site work for GOTP is with Taro Shinoda from Japan who will be in residence near White Sands National Monument in Southern New Mexico. There he will build a large pin hole camera, 32m long, to shoot photographs of the the full moon on both July 3rd and August 1st. He will be using a crane to follow the moon over a 5 day period. Shinoda has created several works using a handmade telescope to shoot the moon for an ongoing video project, which he is compiling from sites around the world. He feels that the moon is our first step toward having a sense of us all sharing this planet (Earth) together.
