Sitting Here Casting My Shadow

UK-based artist Rook Floro created this incredibly moving sculpture that gives us a surreal, out-of-body experience.
Viewers can really sense the drama within the performance piece, which was inspired by Carl Jung's psychological theory about the shadow.

“It represents my ‘shadow' which involves my hidden desires to be different and become perfect in my own right,” says Floro. “We always feel the pressure to be perfect by everything around us such as the media, social network, advertisement, friends, and family.”
