Moonlight Sonata explores the emotional impact of the full moon and artificial light on human perception when alone at night in the desert landscape. The photo-video is inspired by the ephemeral Min Min lights that appear at night near the Winton-Boulia road in outback QLD. This unexplained phenomena scares random observers. Long exposures captured the lights of the moon, torch and flash. As a consequence, many images reveal the coloured streaks of stars ‘moving’ while the aperture remained open.
