A shadow is defined by a lack of light. However the shadow itself, carries its own distinct qualities which transform it from simply a “lack” of light, to an object with its own performance: infinitely changing based on
movement, light and material.
Shadows are a device historically used to visualise time, as in the sundial. More contemporary uses of the
shadow have expanded our understanding of the world, the universe and its processes. Representations of our
earth from space generally illustrate time-zones as a line, a line which defines a shadow on one half of the
globe and sunlight on the other.
When experienced at the human scale the shadow line is lost, as timezones are understood with the setting
of the sun. Technology has abstracted this connection further, the observation of the sun has been overtaken with the invention of the clock - adapted from the historic sundial.
Humans can physically only occupy one space at a time and therefore only one timezone at a time. But what if we could immerse ourselves in different timezones all while only occupying one space?
