Shadow study

Light is the direct source to create light and shadow on objects. The reflection from the surrounding environment will add another layer of effect on the objects. In this project, I tried to isolate illumination condition and play with two variables: form and ground color. The main goal of the study is that applying nuance change on environment or form—facade to achieve significant change on light and shadow effect.

Reference: Anamorpic cylinder

Light condition: all white
Material: aluminum


Form tiles function as a collection of forms for referencing. Forms have nuance change on the facade that will have significant change on light and shadow effect.
Product rendering depends not only on carefully designed light setting, but also on the reflection of the surrounding environment. This study will be a reference for the situation that when there’s not many choice of light setting, surrounding environment is an alternative factor that will better the rendering.
