Shadowplay in a barn

Shadowplay in a barn with a roof who has seen better days.

The light fantastic casting shadows on the grainy detail of the floor.

The patterns remind me of cityscapes and they make me want to listen to shadowplay by Joy Division.  maybe you should too? Music has always been such a great inspiration for my own visual practice.

To the center of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
In a room with a window in the corner I found truth

In the shadow play, acting out your own death, knowing no more
As the assassins all grouped in four lines, dancing on the floor
And with cold steel, odor on their bodies mad a move to connect
But I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left

I did everything, everything I wanted to
I let them use you, for their own ends
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you

-Joy Division
