 "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."----H. P. Lovecraft

"We choose to go to the Moon"-----J.F.K

I decided to create an artwork that interprets J.F.K's energetic speech voice band into abstract figures and combine it onto the moon texture. That means to technically analyze some audio features like amplitude, power, speed. 
 That means to technically analyze some audio features like amplitude, power, speed. After the analyzation, all the data were transformed into some basic geometric shapes like linear rectangles, ellipses or triangles. Those shapes keep rotating, iterating, spinning up into a circular spectrum while the speech is playing and this process is also manipulated by the sound parameters. So I generated a kind of rolling vortex to reflect the emotions of this speech, which consists of complex graphical geometries.
It is not a bare visualization of an audio file. After the interpretation, this speech becomes a looming circulating shadow, a  fragile dream of human colonization, an infinite sphere covering the moon. I use just several important parts of the speech and distribute them to ten moon images. These frames look like a series of beautiful eyes or some unpredictable disintegration of ruins. 
 I hope I could use this interactive work to communicate with past and future, instant and eternity, to bring a critical relationship between human and the universe.
“The sky is falling, intergalactical, intergalactical love
And I'll be waiting for you, for you, for you
On the dark side of the moon······”-----Pink Floyd
