Ah, the joy of an unexpectedly glorious “failure”.
I was trialling the opalescent screen and shadow puppets today. It’s fair to say I had no idea what to expect with these colored puppets I’m making. They’re not dependent on a clear black shadow outline, and a good thing too, because despite using the “correct” weight of card, I have some buckling of the card, and the figure I was using did not always lie flat against the screen.
In other words, in purist terms, not “successful”.
But who cares? I’m an artist, not a mechanic. Or an engineer. And I LOVE the ambiguity of form which has emerged here.
