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 reeling sight directly ends up at the strange figures, which dominate the scenery.
The shadows in her pictures have become 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 then she even saw Jimi Hendrix.
All the photographs of the artwork “When Shadows Cast People” was taken from the balcony of artist in Berlin in the last three years during the summers, always in the afternoon between 4:30 and 6:00.
