Always curious about new ways of seeing, I’ve been exploring shadows in my next book. I used to experience 3-d shadows in downtown Houston between skyscrapers at night. They most often appear like the image above, though sometimes they seem to suspend spectral shapes in midair. More recently I enjoyed them in the Chihuly exhibit at the Oklahoma City MOA, but didn’t know what to call them. Here’s a photo I took at one Chihuly (no, I’m not a photographer).
If you look at the spectral imagery on the walls behind the art glass, you get a 2-d version of the 3-d experience I’m trying to describe.
Here’s of a New York sidewalk image by Madelaine DeRose at www.madeau.com that is truly a landscape. Back up a little and fan shapes appear like facets of a gem.
