Crowds

Figures are formed from individual strokes of ink, to which hard shadows are assigned by an intense but unrecognizable light source. The figures are all the same and yet in the most varied of dynamics and arrangements on the white paper. A space that encloses them, gives them support, and yet hardly reveals any spatial or temporal dimension. The only hint is the long shadow people cast behind them.
