Infographic Of The Day: The Trace Of The Moon

'The Trace of the Moon: Dal, Ryeok' is composed of two posters named 'Dal' and 'Ryeok'.

According to the Tripitaka Koreana, the complete collection of Buddhist scriptures carved on over eighty thousand woodblocks, there is a sentence like “Dal is human nature. Thus, Dal that is beside the cloud is bright and light” meaning that as long as one hides his own nature, he would lose his own character or attraction. Wishing to find out the losing light like a full moon, closing the past year and ushering a new year, these two posters are created.

The full moon poster is for 'Dal'. 'Ryeok' poster is devised from the Chinese character “曆” meaning calculation, numeric, or diary. Stature of Moon is a numeric data from Seoul, Republic of Korea (Longitude 37.566, Latitude 126.978, GMT + 9) and is referred to ASTRONOTE (http://astronote.org/calendar.php) Traditionally, lunar calendar was used in Asian society. Lunar calendar was very important because lunar calendar became the standard of agriculture or astronomical observation and until now many Korean people count their birthday using lunar calendar.

Although solar calendar is more widely used, this poster is devised using lunar calendar in order to make people feel the change of season with lunar. In this reason, solar calendar is located in the edge while lunar calendar is centered in the middle. By equally dividing the round with 366 lines, the changing shape of the moon based on the sun-rise time is designed.

Dal flower(Moon flower) is created by visualizing the 2016 Moon’s stature and moving data. Lastly, in order to use this poster as calendar, the season name and holiday in Korea is marked and the 12 different names of the Moon called in Korea is written in the left bottom of the poster.
