In this 45-minute workshop participants will work with paper and light to explore how three-dimensional objects become two-dimensional shadows. Each participant will create a three-dimensional paper cut-out modeled after the techniques employed by Mere Phantoms in their interactive shadow installations.

In the first segment of the workshop, Mere Phantoms artists will demonstrate one of the paper-cut techniques they use in their work, and will guide participants through a design and creation process. The pieces made by the group will be combined with previously made examples to create a small-scale paper-based installation.  In the second segment of the workshop participants will use Mere Phantoms hand-held light wands to explore how their pieces translate in light and shadow.

The workshop will be hands-on and experiential, and will play on scale, light and shadow, and the creative use of negative and positive space.
