Inspriation from sun and from shadow


Architect and artist Anthony Viscardi has begun a one-month residential fellowship at The MacDowell Colony to explore his art of “shadow mapping.”


Viscardi, professor of architecture in the department of art, architecture and design, was chosen by a panel of writers, artists, composers, filmmakers and architects. He will continue his 20-year investigation into shadow mapping, a drawing method generated by tracing the sun-cast shadows of an architectural construct as it is built over one day, thus creating a record of its making. Its composition is a result of the collusion of space and time.
