Playing Shadows

I find shadows very appealing so for this piece I decided to play with making some up of my own. The piece is quite simple but seemed to appeal to a lot of visitors with it's use of illusion. Although the playful work is not created with strict accuracy for some the illusion had them believing until the moving plants gave away their stationary shadows.

I used found foliage from the riverside which I found aesthetically appealing in its subtlety. This is hung in a rising formation with clear thread and graphite powder drawn onto a long sheet of 90gsm tracing paper.
