:) Coming from you this is a great compliment and I truly appreciate it. This I hope is the beginning of a series using ordinary simple objects like pins and shadows to create interesting and complex graphics. It is somewhat an exercise in abstraction.

Thank you so much. Yes I made all of this. I cut a piece of white foam board and then stuck pins at regular intervals along three parallel lines. By orienting the board one can get interesting interaction between the pins and the shadows cast (a harsh strong light works best in this case). The two black areas are done in processing. Those areas were selected and I simply reversed the curve (convert to a negative). That is all there is to it. Future experimentation would involve maybe different non-regular arrangement of pins :))
