Shimabuku: Moon Rabbit

The core of Moon Rabbit is a screensaver that presents exaggerated depictions of figures imagined on the surface of the moon -- a rabbit, a face, a donkey, a crab, a frog with a rabbit. While gradually shifting between these interpretations, the image of the moon slowly increases and then decreases in size in reference to theories that postulate the moon was once very close to Earth. Fascinated by its inaccessibility despite its visibility and proximity to Earth, Shimabuku treats the computer screen as a substitute for the window into worlds unknown that the moon has provided humanity for generations.
