The extended shading system of raytracing provides a look at new aspects of illuminated objects. Using numerous (30 to 500) light sources, I am creating the series, Light=Shade, which reveals images of Light integration. In the algorithm, lighted regions can be easily transferred to shade and vice versa by parameter manipulation. The potential of computer as an image generator meets my creative interest in the realization of images we can not see in the actual world.
