Algo ahí by Billy Hare | en
The series Algo ahí [Something there] originates in the registration of moving shadows projected on a mud wall. The series appeals to a psychological phenomenon called pareidolia, which describes how a vague and random stimulus (usually an image) is perceived wrongly as a recognizable shape.
In this case, pareidolia forces the viewer to recognize human shapes among the shadows. Of course, this is only one possible "solution".
