Once again finding inspiration in the works of Shakespeare, James Christensen’s The Man Who Minds the Moon originates from a passage in the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. From there, the other thirteen of sixteen symbols and references to the moon are the result of his extremely curious and entertaining mind.
“Our fascination with the moon encompasses thousands of years . . . from the dawn of civilization to the exploration of the lunar surface,” explains Jim. “Intrigued by Shakespeare, I set out to capture the mythological essence of man's relationship with the moon. In my quest, I traveled back in time and across continents. The Man Who Minds the Moon incorporates symbolism from astrology, Ancient Babylonia, the Orient, Greece, the natural world, Shakespeare and Medieval Europe.” (Click here to see a key of all 16 references )
