The term originates from moire, a type of textile, traditionally of silk but now also of cotton or synthetic fiber, with a rippled or ‘watered’ appearance. This appearance happens when people shoot in a computer monitor with camcorder. The hertz of the monitor and shutter speed of the camcorder seem to have conflict so the wave lines of rainbow occur.
I want to use this phenomenon in order to show properties of media. Consequently people can recognize that moving images are showed through media as moire obstructs immersion of moving images. In this work, I made sphere images such as drop or bubble then put it on the screen of the monitor. Then I shot the images showed on the monitor. I tried to emphasize the moire phenomenon compared with the original images.
