Moon Arrow is a sculptural arrow which continually points at the moon. Created by artist Heidi Neilson as an Arts and Humanities Resident with the New York City Urban Field Station, Moon Arrow is installed temporarily on shorelines and other public locations and filmed in time lapse to reveal the motion of the arrow alongside the motion of tides and people.
