Seminar: Constructed Realities (2018)
Unseen But Visible
Rebecca Stork

A shadow is a dark shape produced by a body coming in between a light source and a surface. But what happens to your mind when there is nobody in the room but you can see a person’s shadow?

By imitating a spotlight with a projector, the chair‘s shadow falls on the wall behind it. In addition the projector creates a black silhouette. The project invites people to experience the shadow as it interacts with the sitting person. The best way to explore the effect is by sitting on the chair on your own.
