Taro Shinoda: Lunar Reflections Closes
November 5, 2009 - January 31, 2010
November 5, 2009 to January 31, 2010- Special Exhibition Gallery The art of Taro Shinoda engages themes of science, philosophy, and desire, and investigates our place in the universe. During his month-long residency in Boston in the spring of 2007, Shinoda was inspired by the moonlight in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum courtyard to develop his Lunar Reflection Transmission Technique. The project was rooted in the artist’s early childhood memories of trying to communicate with his mother over great distances, entrusting messages to the moon, which he hoped his mother could receive on the other side of the planet when the moon rose for her.
