Shadow Puppet

Shadow Puppet is a video installation and group of photographs that document a series of short performances in which Sawyer attaches pieces of cardboard and plastic to her body, effectively turning herself into a life-sized shadow puppet. The characters whose silhouettes are cast on the wall seem to engage in a dialogue with the artist, giving the impression that they are independently animated.
