“Shadow” is a technological and artistic collaboration between design collective Rhizomatiks and dance troupe elevenplay. Featuring a dancer alongside three drones, “Shadow” feels like a cyberpunk performance from the future. It’s a surreal technodream of algorithmic and human elegance.

The strobe lights make the performance almost feel like glitchy stop motion. It also plays with shadow and light, by turns making the dancer’s shadow look larger than life and then, in the next moment, like a doll spinning on top of a music box.
Both Rhizomatiks and elevenplay hail from Japan, where they are a part of a wave of multidisciplinary artists that seek to explore the intersections of man and machine. In an interview with D&AD, Rhizomatiks says,
“We all have passion for and expertise in technical matters, and wanted to use this to set our imagination free across the disciplinary boundaries of design, art and entertainment. We like to challenge existing formats, from interactive to spatial design.”  (h/t Laughing Squid)
