The Black Box;
Book One, Shadow as Threshold is based around the idea that, “The threshold is a space of unknown limitations”. Within the threshold everything is obscure and shadows can create unreal images forcing one to see a different view on reality. “The shadow threshold veils both understanding of self and self’s relationship to temporal and spatial boundaries.” In other words the shadow hides the truth. This is what both of my clients, Alfred Nobel and Jacques-Yves Cousteau face. They work to unveil truths in nature and succeed by breaking boundaries and viewing reality in a different ‘light’. Within my model I have tried to allow natural and artificial light to intertwine and produce sculpturally different spaces throughout the day and night. I have endeavoured to allow the shadows to transform over time encouraging the spawn of different ideas, inspiring the clients to continue to investigate the unknown.
