The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay – http://yhoo.it/IBn2mK – which contains paragraphs such as, "It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy…no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life." Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

Here’s a skateboarding video by Joe Pease that shows a creative point of view, riding along with the shadow rather than the skateboarder.
