The moon(”月“) is a remarkable subject to pass on poets' nostalgia, love, friendship, and passion for nature. In the narrative of traditional Chinese poetry, the moon is represented by a lot of rhetoric words, such as "Beautiful Lady (婵娟)“,“Silver Hook (银钩)”, which are also refer to different moon phrases.

Moon Poetry Machine recreate the romantic narrative scene that moon reflection in the river, and allow the audience to interact with the moon reflection shadow through hand gesture and face.
