Sciography, The science associated with the calculation of cast and projected shadow forms can get extremely complicated. Wilmar Schütz use shadow analysis to test their understanding how light source and tonal values and shadow massing impact on your architectural portrait before it proceeds to finished artwork.
Colour and texture are especially sensitive to illumination. The sun’s direction, its quality and intensity determine our perception of form whether its the human face or a building. The area where light does not fall, remains in shade and the shadows that are cast can dramatise the subject. Quality of light, plays a key-role on how depth, mood and atmosphere are incorporated into your architectural portrait. The projection of refracted light into shadow massing is of particular interest to us because this informs the liveliness and character of the finished artwork. Wilmar Schütz are committed to international sciography conventions to calculate their shadow geometry
