About 22° Lunar Halo
A lunar halo appears when the moonlight is refracted by 22 degrees through millions of ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere, while behind its hazy beauty in ancient
folklore, it is also a sign foreboding changes.
In collaboration with Sigur Rós and Kjartan HOLM in music, CHENG Tsung-lung uses this natural phenomenon to create 22° Lunar Halo, raising a major question to our fast-changing digital world: Do we still need our bodies if we only use our eyes and fingertips for experience? Against three large LED screens, dancers morph into concrete symbols of our struggles and desires, making all our senses vibrate. 22° Lunar Halo generates an exotic universe, which mixes both of our bodily beauty and intellectual anxiety.
