`Shade` is an investigation into perspective and analog interactivity. It utilizes the sun’s global illumination to create evolving shadows for dynamic, multi-dimensional engagement throughout the day. A collaboration between art, technology, and nature, the artwork’s time-based nature encourages reflection on the potential impact of external influences within our digital-physical world.


The goal of the project was to create an engaging large-scale, temporary installation that would complement the 30+ smaller sculptures that dotted the Burlington Waterfront Sculpture Trail during the spring of 2024.
