Nijmeegse Schimmen, 2011

Shadowlamp
200cm x 80cm x 80cm
Wood, foil, cable

During the Artist-In-Community project I collected silhouettes of users of the City centre of Nijmegen: the mayor, the policeman, individuals walking, sitting, cycling, the prostituee, students...All those silhouettes I used in building a lamp, which is turning around and projecting the shadows. That lamp is shown for public during the month May in the main police-office in Nijmegen.

Take a look on the videos:

I see a strong link to my writings about traditional art form, as woodcutting. See here the article, the result of a research field trip...in 2009.
