Incorporating shadows found in situ, Lam considers the physical traces of objects, studying their shapes not only as an absence of light but also as an attempt to capture their temporary presence. Through this simple omission, Shadow explores how the visual residue of the shadow relates to memory and loss, and by extension, how objects are assigned value and meaning.
