Kage no Sekai: Are You Afraid of the Creatures Hidden in the Dark?

A cool interactive art piece presents tiny creatures aware of human visitors.

These mysterious life forms show themselves only in the shadows cast by products, not humans.

The Kage no Sekai art piece kind of reminds us of the childhood times when we wondered if something was hidden in the shadows. If you are interested in reading more about the concept and implementation, you can find it at their pdf: Interactive Animation of Shadow Based on Physical Action.
