Amazing shadow sculptures

Remember our post on Amazing Shadowgraphy? Something similarly amazing, but which explores the static function of the art, is work by Diet Wiegman, Kumi Yamashita and Tim Noble & Sue Webster. What unites these artistic powerhouses is their ability to turn apparently random objects into mind-blowing shadow art. See Wiegman’s video for an example of his work. See if you can guess what it is before 0:53.

Not content with simply using shadows, Wiegman also manipulates reflections to create images of the earth from a silver platter, or dollar signs from a diamond necklace.

Where Wiegman starts, London based Tim Noble & Sue Webster continue with their shadow artistry.

The duo’s bio states: “The art of projection is emblematic of transformative art. The process of transformation, from discarded waste, scrap metal or even taxidermy creatures to a recognizable image, echoes the idea of ‘perceptual psychology’ a form of evaluation used for psychological patients.”

Tokyo born, NYC based artist Kumi Yamashita does incredible things with shadows — she uses a single light source along with an assortment of perfectly placed objects to create incredible silhouettes and artwork on walls.
