“shadowfield” consist of three short parts which can either be shown separately or as a linked sequence. Each is 3 minutes 40 secs long. Its images (as the title suggests) are derived from shadows of objects which are concealed from the viewer.
It demonstrates my occasional and continuing interest in trying to exclude showing the actual objects which make up the image. In this instance only their shadows are represented, albeit in a very detailed form, which would be impossible in a non-digital reality.
These movies are silent to allow their visual complexity to dominate the viewer’s experience.
Two forms move against a terrain which is of a similar origin to themselves whilst another form of an obviously different source is also present creating a state of tension in their interaction as they slowly circumnavigate each other.
The sound element driving this movement is derived from electric chisels which could have been used used to fashion the indigenous forms in a less virtual environment?
