Can we produce a three dimensional cloud, a volume, with shadow?
By using very transparant plastic, we create a shadow that is more than the black outline of a shape. The plastic pillow, filled with air, is manipulated by heating some points of either side of the pillow and sticking them together. This way, lighter and darker shades of shadow are formed and a depth is created. As the object is transparent, the emphasis is on the shadow it produces, more than on the object itself.
