Shadows form an isosceles triangle when it moves between two (2) perpendicular faced wall and the angular shape of a shadow is directly proportional to the source of light creating the shadow"

Self Reflection


This piece was a fine blend of my creativity as well as logic. The technique of looping a 2-sec footage across a 7-sec timeline was purely me, thinking outside the box. The interaction of the shadow across the wall was anchored upon scientific facts based on research and observation.
