Time came to a halt

This project I specially present in puntWG is about light and stillness.
How do you catch the moment to suggest timelessness?
An object exists by the grace of light who creates its shadow.
When there is only darkness, you distinguish nothing,
but if there is only light, you don’t observe anything.
Because of this interplay we learn and experience the world around us.
My fascination with this phenomenon started when my eye was caught by
the shadows on walls and doors.
These shadows tell you something about the time of day,
but it also calls the emotions into action.
At the same time, it is an almost tactile experience of warm and cold,
of melancholy and lust for life, of positive and negative.
