Weave The Shadow
This project is about shadow. I am particularly interested in the overlapping of different densities of shadows. Shadows of trees, plants and fences are complex and beautiful; shadows of small objects are animated and darker; shadows of buildings are crisp and lighter. While all these elements come together and overlap with each other, I find the shadows vivid and extremely appealing.
Diagrams above explore ways to analyze the overlapping of various kinds of shadows around the given site twice a day. The darker the lines, the denser the shadows are, and the length of the lines also indicates the height of the object casting the shadows.
The site model is made in accordance with the ideal shadow diagram, forming a serious of canopy-like structures above the site.
