Liddy Scheffknecht, crop, 2013, video, 3 min 13 sec

Liddy Scheffknecht uses sunlight as a plastic material; incident light creates an unusual speckle in the room, which is cast into a specific shape by silhouettes attached to the window. This results in an immaterial image of light, or shadow, which moves through the room – propelled by the earth’s rotation – and chances its shape, size, and proportion. At one particular moment during the day, the sculpted shadow combines itself with an object, in this case with the plant, in the room. What emerges is an illusion of unity of the object and the projection of light or shadow.
