Seeing light is seeing shadow.

Seeing shadow is seeing light.

 

The dome made out with cut-out Washi (Japanese paper) displays both shadows and layers of thin paper. When the light inside turns on, small dots are cast on the surface.

Depending on how far from the light the shadow changes its shape.
