"罔兩 Wang Liang" the shadow of shadow

The term "Wang Liang" comes from an ancient Chinese philosopher ZhuangZhi.
It means "the shadow of the shadow".

Though this series are claimed as "photography", but cameras are not involved.
Roughly, my working process is: First, put a film on the table in the darkroom.
Place an object on the film. Then flash the object with a flashlight.
So, the shadow of the object is recorded on the film. From this point of view,
the image on the film is indeed "the shadow of the shadow".
Thus he named this works as "Wang Liang". by ChiaYu Lee.
