Making Shadows explores the claims on the built environment and public spaces through the eyes of a queer voyeur. An installation that could facilitate cruising, the set of unspoken physical movements and signs that form the vocabulary of private communication across public space. Using partition walls, the installation is an imaginative and playful recreation of an interior space that facilitates sidelong glances and furtive looking. Holes are cut from within a maze-like interior, with drawings and objects placed as navigational guides. The space itself is inspired by configurations of bookstores, parks as well as toilet facilities.
The installation itself includes a suite of drawings and video work.
