Shadow Puppet Influences; Kate Bush music video “Eider Falls at Lake Tahoe”

This inspired me to explore the potential of shadow puppets for the 1896 Olympic sequence. The traditional approach of this music video with a contemporary twist using modern visual methods for people, for example using chains on the old lady’s hair, this also attracted me because of my interest in materials and its role in contemporary image making.
I had never made or used shadow puppets before but was aware of them especially those used in India but was much less aware of how they were made.
