Through a wall-surface a building declares both its autonomy and participation in urban space. Still photographs and a video in a mutual dialog reveal a range of delicate colourful, chromatic shades of anonymous people projected by the lights of passing cars, bus and tram. Real people`s life fragments transform by their shades into abstract fictive narratives. Silhouettes flare up in layers back and forward on an empty wall in Porto.
So, what is a shadow ? And, why do shadows enchant us ? Shadows are attached to all things, and all that is required to view a shadow is a little bit of light. A shadow cannot be seen unless we have light.We need to keep in mind that we exist within the realm of duality.
The first is our physical, visible person which consists of all of the characteristics, experiences, memories , dreams and ideals which we have, and are blended into our everyday self. The second is our invisible, shadow person with all its unused aspects, or potentials of our personal evolution.Therefore, our shadow is our dark, hidden, and unmanifested alter ego. In it resides all of the essences, options, and choices of that person which we have either not become, are afraid to become, or have yet to become.
