Artist Statement

In Praise of Shadows is an installation that aims to use our most powerful and nurturing natural rescource - the sun - to directly communicate the message of focusing on the present moment

- Nature is literally speaking to us.

To watch the text appear and dissapear according to the suns visibility in the sky reminds us of how fleeting, and how special each and every moment we have really is.
