By the Light of the Moon
About the artwork
I keep having these conversations about the moon with my father. He asks, “How can you think that the moon might have any control over your mood?” And I explain to him my tide theory, and say that it has been my experience that my body has cycles that are most of the time out of my awareness. We go on these long walks where we talk about his high school lovers, his will to train to climb the half dome, and our bad business ideas that will never actually happen. Being here, under this sky with these people, is enough.
In honor of this collaboration, Absolut Art donated $500 to Extinction Rebellion, an organization fighting climate change.
