Implications - The use of shadows is one way to create a sense of mystery and stir intrigue into the minds of an audience. By concealing certain parts or all of the features of a figure, consumers are forced to use their imaginations. With the proper use, silhouettes and shadows can create a level of participation that the viewer isn't even aware of. By not giving them the entire picture, companies encourage consumers to add on and create subconsciously.
