Untitled (leaf shadows)
Dayton Art Institute's Experiencenter
April 28, 2012-April 7, 2013
I was one of 25 local artists invited to create a work within the theme "Inside the Box." We were given an unfinished Ikea box shelf and a few perimeters.
I was just learning the Arduino platform, and wanted to incorporate lights. Mary Temple's installation at the Mattress Factory came to mind, and I was inspired by the idea of creating a sense of light and shadow in unexpected places.
Ultimately I thought the inside of the box was more visually interesting with all the wires and shapes, but it was veiled by the 'screen' on which the shape shadow were projected.
