The paper light/shadow boxes were inspired by classic silhouette animation and my obsession with paper. For this paper and light was the medium. The construction of the pieces involved several elements which all had to precisely and delicately assembled. This included the drawing of the concept which had to be on separate layers for the effect, the cutting of each individual design, the layering and spacing of the paper and the construction of the outer box. The dichotomy of the final piece in it’s lit and unlit state is truly magical.
