This “shadow” of myself was created in a way to personify the oddness and pity I felt for the contradictory feelings of being lonely with no desire for human contact, and the shadow became a substitute that was never going to be good enough. With that intent the partner became even more pathetic; it became a distorted shell of a person. When interacting with this shadow it became unsettling, its movement is at the mercy of its caretaker. It’s joints bend backwards and forwards slowly and surely. This shadow finds itself at the in the middle of an unknown and it’s distortion begs people to push and pull it’s image from that of humanity. The theme of this show jumped out at me as a place for this piece as it deals with the ideas of the otherness that people can find in themselves.
