Using mathematics to produce each visually compelling and mind-boggling piece of work, Corneli gives life to his seemingly simple, geometric wall extensions with light. He poignantly says, “Light is energy which creates forms.”
Whether Corneli’s piece is a folded sheet of copper casting the negative space of an intricate scene, a suspended triangular lantern expelling a burst of light in the silhouette of a man with outstretched arms, or a few simple stick-like structures on a wall allowing shadows to create the defining contours of animal faces, they each utilize the power of light and shadow to form unforeseeable figures.
