Battered Moonlight is made from paper mache over steel (painted
in white acrylic/latex), approximately 21 inches across. If you like,
can think of it as an 11-holed, 6-edged, 1-sided surface, with chiral
The light and shadow constantly change as it slowly rotates.
The steel (hardware cloth) framework,
before I applied the paper mache,
looked like this.
(I looked different back then, too.)
The title comes from a poem by Elizabeth Bishop, The Man-Moth.
