LIGHTING / Po-Hsin Liu + Yen-Ting Tseng (TAIWAN)
When there is light, there is shadow? Let’s play shadow with light. This is an outdoor lighting workshop, a sunshine playground, which use sunray as the paint and the shadow as the stroke. In this workshop, we will create a classic scene with shadows, which utilizes natural elements, local materials, and personal items. During the process, we will share some knowledge about the property of light and play with its color, shape, as well as shadows. By exploring the fun and conflict about shadows and lights, we convey a conversation between the reality and the illusion.
