Shadow Charts – real time graph generation

10th April 2011

I made this installation that does quantitative comparison. Based on the value of the 2 compared entities, the motor turns to a particular degree. A wood piece is being mounted on the shaft of the motor which holds the spot light.

Initially, the spot light is adjusted such that it is exactly over the cube – so that there is no shadow ( if we cannot see the shadow, is it getting generated?).

Then based on the value, the motor is being turned for a particular degree. The rotation of the spotlight creates a offset and a shadow gets generated. The more the turn the longer the shadow.

Here min value = 0 degree,
max value = 90 degree
