By seeing the transfiguration that trees and buildings gradually turn into silhouette at dusk, I became aware of an uncertain boundary between flatness and depth in our everyday environment. Normally shadow or silhouette is seen as a partial absence of light that doesn't have any volume. I, however, attempt in this installation to add optical volume and depth to shadows.
