Everyday objects can be manipulated to cast
incredibly realistic shadows.
These contemporary or postmodern artists have developed a technique to
demonstrate their creativity through working something out of immaterial pieces
of metal scraps or, to put it bluntly, junk – and cast awe-inspiring shadows by
combining art and illusion – darkness and light.
Although this may not be entirely new, this could only be done perfectly by real
talented artists who see way beyond the physical and visual attributes of things
utilized to create shadow art
British-born and -based artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster skilfully skirt the
boundaries between beauty and the shadowier aspects of humanity, playing with
our perceptions as well as our notions of taste. Many of their most notable
pieces are made from piles of rubbish, with light projected against them to
create a shadow image entirely different to that seen when looking directly at
the deliberately disguised pile.
