Incredible Shadow Sculptures Made of Rubbish

ADVERTISEMENT

Do you remember Shadow Paintings by Rashad Alakbarov we showed you last month? It appears that there are more great artists experimenting with this technique.

Tim Noble and Sue Webster also take ordinary things including rubbish, to make assemblages and then point light to create projected shadows which show a great likeness to something identifiable including self-portraits.

“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. Noble and Webster are familiar with this process and how people evaluate abstract forms. Throughout their careers they have played with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning. The result is surprising and powerful as it redefines how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones.”
