shadows with multiple meanings (simplest)


Another interesting property of shadows is that their meaning can change as the light source moves, even without resorting to moiré patterns, as in this sculpture by Markuz Raetz.

… or in this God-Ego duality shadow sculpture by Fred Eerdekens.

With the introduction of moiré effects, the number of possible distinct meaningful shadows can quickly multiply. So far, I have not seen anyone trying this medium.
