A study on architectural projection and the transformation of form through shadow. The sculptural piece was created through a combination of impulsive and calculat- ed decision-making. The sculpture was then measured and drawn, mathematically projecting the cast shadow of the hanging slabs in isometric projection. I then created a small model of the sculpture and used a light source to cast and record the shadow path with the light at three distances.
