              Imagine Shadow 

People tend to focus on the places where light shines and tend to overlook the places where light does not reach. A person has only one appearance, but his shadow can have many kinds of appearance, the shadow is changeable. When I stand under a street lamp, my shadow can turn into a giant or a dwarf. As soon as I change my angle, the shadow becomes something completely different. My work is to use a light source to control the shadow of an object and then add stick figures to shape it into something completely different. The whole process can be said to be the conversion and combination between 3D and 2D, and both appear in my work at the same time.
