Self-portrait

Self-Portrait: on casted Light and Shadow on paper

The Self-Portrait series turns the photograph into an object by physically transforming the shadow, by using light to create objects without shadows, cutting out shadows from the photographs, filling the cut-out shadows with blood, turning the images into photograms, and drawing-in shadows in the photographs.  By physically manipulating shadows, I expressed my personal memories and experiences through materiality of light and shadow on photographs.
