Description: With this book, Rainer Reusch aims to expand the concept of shadow and ignite enthusiasm for its diversity among the audience. He explores the shadow from various perspectives: in psychology and physics, in performing and visual arts, in photography and film, in literature and architecture. The book is bilingual (English/German). Shadows are part of our daily lives and yet are often overlooked. We tend only to see the objects themselves and ignore their dark reflections on the ground. As the scientist Robert Casati says: “Shadows are extras on the stage of perception.” However, shadows have numerous facets: beautiful and ugly, pleasant and unpleasant, expressive and dull, kitschy and poetic, humorous and authentic. This is what makes them excellent working material for shadow players.

Note: The content is available in both German and English for a broader audience.

Don’t miss the chance to explore the multifaceted world of shadows!
