The Moon is full but it is not the Moon is the first Collective Dreamworld Project's large scale exhibition, produced by ROTONDES and the Ministry of Culture, Luxembourg. It is a multidisciplinary and multimedia happening where audiences can journey into a 5000 square feet surreal landscape composed of sounds, images, sculptural objects, and textual traces. This exhibition is conceived by Gioj De Marco, Loris D' Acunto, Agnese Toniutti, Karolina Pernar, and Andrej Mircev, who dreamt together and recorded their experiences for six months. A sensorial collage emerged, shaped by text, movement, image-making, and musical compositions, reacting to, or in collaboration with, the naturally occurring automatic writing produced by the AI. The gallery is entered through a meandering tunnel, a porthole of sorts. Built expressly to provide the audience with a transitional space, this area is a preamble of things to come; lights are dramatically low and lead to the total installation. An immersive soundscape is present, composed of fieldwork recordings. Desert winds, an earthquake on Mars, radar echoes from Titan's Surface, the melodic rhythms of stalactites dripping in a cave situate the cosmic geolocation of the collective dreamworld. The bulk of the exhibition takes place in a series of atmospheric chambers, woven together by a closed-loop sequence, where sculptural forms, video projections, musical compositions, and staged performances take turns appearing and disappearing.
