When the map was complete, I hung it from the ceiling in my studio and tried a few different types of lighting on it.
Above and below : Soft lighting using an anglepoise lamp
Using the torch on the iPhone
Beautifully dark lacy shadows, but jagged and a bit sinister too
Huge shadows which swamp the wall…would make a very dramatic installation if I had the right space for it
These shadows are very powerful, although they don’t have the 3-Dimensional effect that the wire shadows have. I will also have a go at videoing the map rotating, as it would be interesting to see how the shadows work with movement.
