“Tearing Shadows” is a multi-media installation by German based artist Robert Seidel. The installation is composed of suspended molded plastic, and using projected imagery to continually alter the presence of his physically constructed sculpture. The combination between the sculptural form and the video sequence unfolds the shadow and gives it an autonomous existence.  401contemporary, the gallery in Berlin where Seidel’s installation was exhibited, describes the installation as the following  “As autonomous existences light and shadow compete on the surface of the projection sculptures and, driven by eternal change, create endlessly varied transitional spaces.”

“My goal is to create something that seems believable in the way it moves, in its form and sound, without giving enough information to fully decipher it. So each viewer finds a very personal narration to these organic-abstract worlds.” Seidel said
