A streetlight that records and plays back shadows

Winner of Watershed's 2014 Playable City Award, Shadowing gave memory to Bristol's city lights, enabling them to record and play back the shadows of those who passed underneath. Shadowing offers an exploration of the disconnectedness that technology can create between strangers, the role of light in creating a city's character, and the unseen data layers and surveillance culture that pervades our contemporary urban spaces.
