“Shadows are always on a 2-dimensional plane, but are formed cause of a 3-dimensional form. “
I had the idea to play around with shadows along a 2-Dimensional plane to form lines for the Project. I had a few ideas right off the bat, but I did some research to further push my initial ideas.
Artist: Kumi Yamashita
After some research, I found Kumi Yamashita’s work. I was so blown away that I was determined to play with shadows. Of course not to the extent of how she so expertly and intricately does it, but perhaps to my own style.
I documented the process of my trials in the series of pictures.
i proceeded then to cutting out shapes and bending them out of their original plane to create abstract shadows. in this case, the spikes cast a wide array of shadows as the light hits it from above.
i moved on to more complicated shapes like arches that cast oblong shadows depending on where the torchlight is shining from.
lastly, i played around more with the composition and added subjects into the shadows.
Currently i am still in the midst of exploring this aspect of playing with shadows, hopefully ill be able to form a solid idea soon
and use my new gained knowledge on to further projects in the future.
