I was wondering if there is a way for either text or any image to bend to a contour of a corner as it's moving any direction.

For example let's say there's a corner of a wall, and we are facing the corner with a wall on the left, wall on the right and the corner in the middle. We see the text move left to right, bending to the contour of the wall in the middle as if it's a shadow or light.

I was wondering if there is an expression or easier way of doing this rather than messing with shear, camera angles, etc...

There's an old tutorial on wrapping Times-Square-style news headlines around a building. It would work for your corner, I think. You should look it up.

I'd probably just bend the layer with FreeForm.
