Shadow Spaces
By Owen Gildersleeve & Stephen Lenthall

Shadow Spaces is a new papercraft collaboration that studies the relationship between space, form, light and it’s natural counterpart, shadow.

The project was conceived by artist Owen Gildersleeve and still life photographer Stephen Lenthall, who used light as a map to shape miniature architectural spaces.

The structures were built with simple white paper, and each defined by the way they reflected light. This resulted in bold, geometric forms, void of all unnecessary ornamentation. The forms were then further brought to life with a layer of intense light – creating crisp, dramatic shadows. The final effect is a powerful display of capturing light and casting shadow.
