Light, dark, shadow, sunset, sunrise, fog, uncertainty, full of potential, illusion, rustling, the body.
A shadow is “a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light.”

Shadows can re-create an old, familiar image into something new. Therefore motion-light interaction in the public sphere can give birth to new, multiple spaces, inside places that we have become used to experiencing in a certain way. It can give spaces in the city that have been ignored, a new meaning and a new perspective. In this constant game of light, movement and shadow we will create a transitional, impermanent space, where visitors will re-visit known places with a new purpose, which is less practical but more meaningful. Revisiting these previously abandoned spaces, allows us to revive them to fulfill new functions
