Catching Shadows Friday Late – visitors work with clay

In celebration of the fantastic Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography exhibition currently on display in the museum, October’s Friday Late was themed around Catching Shadows.  As part of the programme of activities for the evening I invited visitors to model additions to a clay landscape which was lit to cast a shadow of the scene onto the wall in the Sackler Centre.  

Throughout the night we transformed this…

to this…

Visitors seemed happy to get their hands dirty, use their imagination and get creative, producing a wonderfully chaotic scene by the end of the night.  Thank you to all those that took part!
