Artist and viewers are continually interacting with the shadows of what has transpired before. Although the pieces do not often change their meaning does, as the culture that carries the history forward looks at it with its specific contemporary understanding. As a culture then we are continually interacting and subtly changing our history. I gathered a collection of photos of shadows, liberated from historically famous artworks from the Moma in New York. My generation was educated about art history through slides, so I used that technology when showing the 80 images collected in this installation. The audience’s shadow had direct interaction with the slides of shadows allowing that the piece to be unique to each viewer. The motion sensors will enable the piece to live when someone is actively present.
