‘umbra’, consisting of three large-scale Tetris-style blocs, resembles a basic maze through which visitors are invited to wander. A number of lights and projectors are arranged between the white semi-opaque walls of the structure,
casting drifting shadows around passers-by.
While in a normal maze, people are tricked and find themselves lost between the labyrinthine walls, in Umbra, the artifice consists of a visual illusion between the audiences’ silhouettes and the intermittent projection of performers’ shadows, which have previously been filmed and are then projected onto the walls of the installation.
