Crop by Liddy Scheffknecht

Crop by Liddy Scheffknecht

“Crop” is part of a series of videos, in which Liddy Scheffknecht explores sunlight as a sculptural material. Sunlight that shines through a window is cast into a specific shape by silhouettes attached to it. The result is an immaterial image of light or shadow, which moves through the room – propelled by the earth’s rotation – changing its shape, size, and proportion continually. At one particular moment during the day, the sculpted shadow connects itself to an object – in this case with the plant, in the room. What emerges is an illusion of unity of the object and the “artificial“ shadow.
