The concept of our project was the manipulation of light and shadow and how it can create an atmosphere reminiscent of children’s night-time stories. The use of primary colors became central in our idea because we wanted to emphasize the simplicity of tales that are told to children. Our most challenging issue in creating the set was experimenting with the light source and the distance from which the projected objects needed to be in order to induce appropriately sharp shadows and dimness of light. This project was especially helpful in demonstrating to us the affect of light shining through different sized apertures (simply holes cut into black card board) and how this can change the shadow contrast and sharpness. We originally began this project working with shadows cast onto the books, as well as how aluminum foil reflected on surfaces. In the end we decided to our concept of shadow manipulation gave for a stronger meaning, but we do wish we could have incorporated reflection in some way as well.
