<p>As a visual artist I am concerned that we, in the West at any rate, must use shadow to delimit the boundaries of form.

<p>From this perspective we can look at Shadow as the dark matter of composition, without any value judgment of positive and negative space. I now use a laser beam to probe the space between the elements of a still-life. We might seek to reveal a true duality of trace and outline.</p>
