Remnance of Form is an interactive installation that explores the dynamic tension between an object and its shadow. By fusing light, projection, and motion technologies, the shadow can now detach itself from its former role. This creates a new narrative that challenges our perception of reality, and even the simplest objects can be seen as sophisticated and personified. Through several playful vignettes, the shadow interacts with viewers' presence and body posture, as well as their manipulation of the light source creating the shadow.
