SLIDING SHADOWS

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.
