My book is Flatland. A romantic novel of many dimensions written by Edwin Abbott Abbott, in 1884. For its time this book is considered ridiculous and satirical. It is an in depth description and walk through of a two dimensional world where the only residents are a society of squares, triangles, circles, and other shapes.
In the novel though a sphere appears from the 3D dimensions and introduces a square to the 3rd dimension. It is a very interesting read.
I kind of landed on this direction where I cut out letters and folded them in half. By shining a light from the left, the shadow casted completes the letter.
I think need to use better paper that will hold and can be straight. Also would like to try the light from different directions and maybe mix those in photoshop.
