SHADOWS CAST PEOPLE
There is no “up” and “down”, three-dimensional objects are perceived as flat, gravity is reversed. Like riding a carousel the observer loses his spacial orientation.
The shadows are independent from the people and perform their spectacle, in which the people only play a minor part, mostly unnoticed. Mickey Mouse, Nosferatu, Minotaurus appear just like a serial killer, a bear with a revolver or a Multi-storeyed woman … and even Jimi Hendrix.
