Dark Shadow Moodboard Winter 2014 ©
Dark Shadow by lauren jane is an exploration of the effects of light and the formation of shadows. The theme is an expression of my own personal way of seeing, as it is the eye that allows us to perceive the world around us. The research for the collection has involved observing and documenting the effects of white light creating shadow through photography and academic research into the line of sight. The overall colour palette for the collection draws upon tonal blacks, greys, beige and a hint of electric blue to draw the eye to a focal point. It was discovered that a blue colour cast forms over a shadow and creates an invisible film that is not visible by the human eye. The beauty of a shadow lies within its fragility and dependency on a light source. This indicates the inseparable qualities of the two elements and reliance on one another. The mood board displays the dark emotion connected within the range isolating the individual to establish a connection with their inner ‘dark shadow’.
