2011 - Pop-Uptown




Shadows - fabric, wallpaper glue, paint




One of the strangest discoveries at ground zero in Hiroshima were the shadow like impressions from the heat of the explosion left on building walls of ordinary people going about their daily life (see attached images). Those shadow like impressions are reminders of the horrific price paid when fear and fight feed off one another.

For the show I proposed creating an installation piece named ‘Shadows’ that is constituted of four (4) life size shadow like impressions of people, using a fabric version of papier mâché technique (using clothing articles, wall-paper glue, fabric glue, corn starch and grey paint). The images depict persons listening to an iPod, talking on a cell phone, walking with a stroller & text messaging.
