Penumbral

Jacob Dennison

Grade 12, Lake Region High School

"This piece is inspired by the dark - the absence of light - or more specifically, the impact it can have on an individual. Some people feel comforted and blanketed by it, and some people, including many children, are afraid of what might be lurking in it. The unusual atmosphere of this piece makes it feel to me like a ballet of shadows, evoking many contrasting emotions. It creates both uneasiness and comfort. It's like the monster under your bed trying to sing you a lullaby."
