These pictures are taken two weeks ago when I was in the long beach of Los Angeles. I played Shadow with my friends. I let him move to the right a little bit after I drew the outline of his shadow. Shadow is a good way to reflect figures, movement, as well as memories. It is something you can never hold in hands but it is always there with you.
1.My first approach is to create a 2D square spot light who has its own shadow delays behind.
I covered a thin paper in front of my screen when the light is moving. I imagine there is a dance or story will start to happen before the translucent stage.
This is a set of cubes in a 3D environment has three lights shooting from three perspectives. When I move the mouse, the light changes due to how many areas are facing the lights. Other parts turn into shadow.
3. The third one is a hand dancing. I simulated the flashlight environment and use a 24-inch monitor lighting up the background. The light changes from dark to light and the changing frequency gradually becomes the more faster as I applied an acceleration to the timer. This idea comes from Sleep No More.
Documentary:(thanks for Melody Hu) This was the first version when I was doing hand dancing on my 15-inch mac book pro.
