das Schattenbuch / children's book

das Schattenbuch
das Schattenbuch

The shadowbook tells a story about shadows and how they can change our point of view. The text is accompanied by silhouettes which are projected on a wall by an integrated light-emitting diode. The reader, becomes a
projectionist and the listeners, especially young children who are not able to read, can fully enjoy the magic of the illustrations while listening. When the showing is over the cinematic instrument transforms into a handy book that waits for its next presentation, for instance when it is getting dark outside and time to go to bed.
