Sliding Shadows

The mechanically automated Sliding Shadow, holds an even rhythm pacing the audience into an intimate encounter. With each rotation of the mechanical slide carousel, we are afforded a close-up view of different scanned sections of netted wire mesh, while light is thrown through a black mesh figure sticking out from the projection wall. Rather than separating shadows from their material forms, here we are granted a part in their entangled relationship.
