Shadowbox was a light installation as part of Glowfest 2022 and Chinook Blast 2023. It was featured on Stephen Avenue as well as at the Marriot Residence Inn in the Beltline. This interactive installation was featured in various news outlets and had thousands of interactions daily
Shadowbox is about the ‘Observer being the Observed’. We often perceive ourselves as separate entities, disconnected from others by time and space. We may feel as though our actions and emotions exist in a vacuum, but this is not the case. We are all interconnected whether we are aware of it or not. Shadowbox uses light and atmospheric conditions to draw users into the installation. Visually it reads as a passageway of light, a temporary immersion in colour as you walk through. To users on the outside however you become the interactive point of interest. Your shadows are projected on the glowing acrylic panels, creating dynamic visuals that represent our transient interactions with one another. Whether aware of it or not, you are both the puppet and puppet master.
