Peter Brings the Shadow to Life

  • Joe Pease's hypotic video of a skater's shadow

  • Tags:

    Here's an unconventional take on the DIY skateboarding vid from Joe Pease, aka Predatory Bird, who shot his buddy's shadow as he threw down moves on the pavement. The title comes from an essay on shadow symbolism in Peter Pan, where you'll find lines such as:

    It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy…no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life. Because the adult figures in Peter Pan do not understand the reality of a shadow, it becomes the audience’s responsibility to do so.

    Sure.

    Soothing music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
