Sculpture and Shadows

photo by David Bales
"All material is nature, 
the mountains, and the streams, and the air, and we, 
are made of light,
which has been spent, 
and this crumpled mass called material casts a shadow, 
and the shadow belongs to the light." 

Louis Kahn architect

Is the quote by Kahn's is a prayer, an observation, or a design philosophy?

I was delighted to read it. It sums up how I'd like people to understand my new series of paper cuts transformed into large metal screens. The metal is both object and a projecting pattern for shadows that create something constantly changing, ephemeral and magical.
