Facebook’s war on free will | Technology | The Guardian
"Automation has come in waves. During the industrial revolution, machinery replaced manual workers. At first, machines required human operators. Over time, machines came to function with hardly any human intervention. For centuries, engineers automated physical labour; our new engineering elite has automated thought. They have perfected technologies that take over intellectual processes, that render the brain redundant."

Pak Keung Wan : Lune
Lune began in 2009 and grew out from the series Untitled (in papyro). It has become a generative form currently comprising drawing, animation, projection and installation.

I came across a publication by NASA which details through diagrams every solar eclipse over a 5000 year period from -1999 June 12 to 3000 October 19.

​Each drawing stems from the linear path of shadow traversing the Earth’s surface as seen in each diagram. The forms in the In Papyro series evolve from numerous self-devised templates. Lune is drawn through one of those templates. 
Although the NASA publication informed the production of Lune, its underlying themes are shared by In Papyro. Here, there are correspondences that reveal and explain - the alignment of two (celestial) bodies bringing forth the (re)production of a life. Within these invaginated forms, in its folds, fissures and openings, I have begun to see Lune as some kind of prosthetic for a paternal activity where drawing, the still and moving image are surrogates through which a life is sustained. Lune is an act of reproduction.

There are 11,898 solar eclipses detailed in NASA’s publication and the 1200 drawings that make up this current animation span a mere 487 years.

Lune is ongoing
