Found these in a shoebox - in May 2010 they were the "sky boats" hung in gallery windows. Now they threaten to become book objects of some sort.
Photographs of shadows have been printed out on various papers - some give a colour cast, some have been converted to grayscale.

The shapes is nonetheless boatlike - like Petter Southall's "dory shelves" in the One Tree project -
Or the boat bathtub by Weiki Somers (from here; seen and coveted at the V&A "Telling Tales" show in 2009, in rather a more atmospheric setting) -
Or Lindisfarne boat sheds? -
No, perhaps not ... I digress ...

There's something really lovely about them.
