I have always been fascinated with light and shadows. It has intrigued me that just changing the positioning of the light source over a physical model can create different shadows and effects. I am not exactly sure with the aesthetic I will be following but I think I’m leaning to wards sculptural. To add to this complexity I ant to attempt to make the physical model amorphous. Anamorphosis, in visual arts, is an ingenious perspective technique that gives a distorted image of the subject presented in a picture when seen from the viewpoint but so executed that if viewed from a particular angle, or reflected in a curved mirror, the distortion disappears and the image in the picture appears normal. I have attached a few images of the inspirations I would wish to follow. So putting it simply, My project plan is to combine two visual art techniques (shadow art sculpture and Anamorphous art) to create a unique artifact.
