Eliasson realized this early projection work while still a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. The silhouette of a window frame was produced by partially masking a spotlight using a gobo, a special stencil used to create lighting effects in the theatre. Over the years, Eliasson has continually explored the effects of projected light, with particular emphasis on how light and shadows transform and define a space.
