Sun Shadow, 2014 – Light Signatures :: (click to see more)

I tried another idea today and explored some variations in an attempt to present the shape of the city. I don’t think this is it – not quite yet at least. It’s an elusive feeling I’m reaching for. I want to present a sense of shape that is inclusive of all the city’s elements – not just the static structures but also the dynamic moving and mobile parts. So far though I don’t think this idea is enough.

I’m sure you’re thinking – well lets see these ideas you keep speaking of. But they would be a disappointment at this stage. They are mostly rough, unfinished concepts only – ugly and more exercises in technique than actual realized ideas – practice pieces not the finished performance.

In the meantime, here is another of the final few images I’ve finished for Light Signatures.
