Shadow Glare

“Shadow, Glare” is an art piece that explores the viewer’s sense of awareness with computer screens and  displayed information.

The installed application creates a slowly morphing shadow that lives above the information inside a screen while also appearing to be projected onto the surface of the physical screen. Creating shadows that mimic the interruptions caused by natural light.

The artist, Erin Shirreff, aims to explore a user’s perception and focus on screens. Streams of email, information, and status updates compete for a reader’s attention, continuously shifting their focus. At times, this is interrupted by the physical properties of the display itself. From a particular angle, sunlight might render dust on a screen to be the main focus instead of the content inside the screen.

“Shadow, Glare” is a reminder of how attention can be fragmented by elements that live inside and beyond the screen.
