Mystery light and shadow

Meng Xue Cui

Lighting design includes the design of shadows as well as the design of light. Light and dark are not antagonistic to each other. They are counterparts, like the yin and yang of Chinese cosmology that combine to produce all that comes to be. Without shade or darkness, light loses much of its meaning; patterns of light and shade render the prominences of surfaces and objects in the visual field.

Shadows are products, partly because we learn to produce them, they are full of ideas that everyone can see. I would like to show that everything in the world has got different sides to it, there is a relationship to link them together. I would like to define the relation between the cause and effect of light and shadow.
