ARTS 308 - Kinetic Sculpture Proposal

Moving Shadow Attached to Performer

Exploring the social (macro) and emotional (micro) implications of identity as represented by our shadows.

A performer manipulates a lightweight armature that is attached to their feet and hands.


I want to use something lightweight that will not be too cumbersome for the performer (balsa wood, fabricated plastic sheets). I also want to design a structural joint system that is flexible but won't collapse under gravity. Finally, I'm interested in creating a structure that fits together rather than relying on hardware to attach the different parts of the armature.


  • Designing a structure that "fits together" without much hardware
  • Finding light yet sturdy material
  • Figuring out the balance of the sculpture as attached to the performer
