FORM FOLLOWS SHADOWS
In looking for alternative ways of expressing myself without drawing, I developed a specific way of shaping and visualizing my thoughts with shadows.
Playing with various sources of light, I transform existing elements by stretching their original shapes into distinctive and original visuals. Sometimes as a live-collage, or as a transformation process, I explore the dialogue created between the existing shape and its shadows.
In addition to the interesting visual results, the process in itself is a real pleasure full of surprises. It works for me as an inspiring phase in the visual translation of my concepts.
In march 2019, I have given a workshop at the Design Academy Eindhoven based on this method.
