Hans- Peter Feldmann "Shadow Play'

Researching a new project in which I plan to use shadows I came across Hans-Peter Feldmann's work....I love this simple technology.

Christian Boltanski - Shadows

My favourite Christian Boltanski - I can't help but be drawn to his work I always find it compelling although often very sad. These make me think of Mexican skeleton puppets made for The Day of the Dead.

Home, again - The Jam Factory Oxford
