In experimenting for this project I was particularly interested in creating shadows of different sizes using height of objects as well as distance between the objects and the light source. I found the the arrangement of objects also served to compliment or contrast with the shadow they cast as a body. The choice of color in the objects was also a crucial element for me. I liked the simplicity of using primary colors as to not fully distract from the main concept yet still add another layer of meaning. Experimenting with the light source was probably the most interesting challenge I faced during this project. I cut out different sized holes in black cardboard and mounted them infront of the light so create a sort of spotlight effect. This led to sharper shadows when the light was a significant distance from the set. This also meant that our main light source was very dim, but I think this worked well with the aspect of bed time stories. Overall I think we were successful at creating the atmosphere that we intended. The background of books served as an appropriate “canvas” for our shadows that in themselves created a narrative, although we had no specific story in mind when creating the set.
