Longshadow: Shyra DeSouza
Longshadow is a collection of mini installations of interior home spaces that emphasize the monumental, curio cabinet, or trophy-like relationship to kitsch items.

Complex layered shadows create an abstraction of the forms, enabling the viewer to see many angles/perspectives at once.
