A place that exists only in moonlight contains a series of artworks to exist in the imagination. Comprising over one hundred short texts, each concerns the landscape, the universe, or an expanded sense of earthly and geological time. These poetic phrases take shape in the mind of whoever reads the words, and so become an expression of the idea itself.
