The projective nature of light results in distorted shadows, the remnants of physical forms, no different from any human perception that is governed by subjectivity. This work seeks to widen the gap between the objective world and the perception of it by programmatically altering the association between an object and its shadow. The shadow can transform or be animated, demonstrating a range of personality and emotion. On the other hand, the visual and interaction gestalts of our installation are carefully designed to emulate physical shadows. By juxtaposing the poetic interpretation of the shadow and realistic visuals, we explore the evocation of strong personal connections with an object and its shadow.
