Under One Moon, is an interactive art piece to explore photos of the moon taken at the same time, during the Supermoon 2016. It uses over 2+ million public photos posted on Instagram with relevant hashtags during the supermoon from different parts of the world. Later an algorithm matches photos taken within a few seconds of each other, and displays them on the map based on their coordinates. A project ideated by Joel Lundblad and Brad Warsh, and programmed by me. It uses Firebase for database, NodeJS for parsing Instagram and a WebGL Globe to visualize the photos.
Between November 11th and 14th, we have experienced the biggest, closest and brightest full moon since January 26, 1948. And it won’t be this close to earth again until November 25, 2034. Reminding us that no matter who we are, where we are or what our differences are; we are all under one moon together. And it is shining brighter than ever.
