Elusions is an installation created for a historic schoolhouse on the island of Vinalhaven, Maine. By layering silhouette images, cut into custom-built window screens and curtains, the story unfolds.  The piece was viewed from the inside of the building, illuminated by natural light during the day, and from the outside of the building with incandescent light at night.

A Kind of mental escape was created by the stories illustrated in the shadow projections.  Physical escape was suggested by the creation of a physical passageway between the inside and outside of the building.
