Electric Shadow


I wanted to do this five years ago, but lacked the nerve. Luckily, French street artist Zevs did it five years prior and a hundred times better. By tracing the shadows of street objects (posts, benches, garbage cans, etc.), the artist created streetscapes based on the fleeting je nais sais quoi of light hitting at just the right moment. Doing this, oft-ignored street objects are commemorated and their temporary accompaniments are made subtle constants.
