Peter Brings the Shadow to Life

Shadows are dreamful…

The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay – – which contains paragraphs such as, “It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life.” Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. By Predatory bird
