Light and Shadow

There are many ways to interpret terms of light and shadow and how to understand them. Both can cause a lot of different sensations which include a lot of opposing feelings, either positive or negative.
I am always fascinated by the ability of trees to give specific kind of light and shadows coming through their leaves. While using light to provide shadow, they create a space full of colours. In my opinion those colours are the essence which makes this kind of shadow so specific. In my work I use those colours to built up the space.
I made an installation out of large colour surfaces from free hanging, semi-transparent papers. They are spaced out in a distance which is enough so that everyone can easily enter or exit, but still form the space. Those colours can be fully perceived from the inside of the installation.
