Moon Vessel

Air, glass, light

Being displayed next to the models of celestial objects is a spherical glass vessel. The vessel is lit by a slowly orbiting light. In the front, on the frosty surface of the vessel, a subtle moonlike pattern is formed. The imagery is cast by encased air bubbles on the back side of the vessel. Only after several takes do the viewers realize that the "moon" is slowly phasing.
