Dusk

This work is about making night shadows visible during the day. By coloring the shadow white, we erase It. Shadows of trees change during seasons while shadows of signs and the likes remain the same.

Artist Statement

I work with material in a way that enhances its properties and disables its primary function. The primary function of the straw is to transfer liquid. Used in the artwork, the straw transfers light, thus still retaining part of its purpose. Freed from its primary function it can produce new meanings.

While walking along the street illuminated by artificial light, all kinds of shadows appear in their stillness and deformations. During the night, hardly noticeable, they disappear when colored white and appear during the day in various forms.
