Impressive Shadow Art by Kumi Yamashita

Picture 13 of 13

Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita creates amazing shadow art by using various seemingly ordinary items and some light.

A giant steel exclamation point, lit from right angle becomes a question mark, paper sheets cast shadows that look like faces, aluminum numbers add up to create a silhouette of a woman – these are just a few examples of what can be done with shadows. The possibilities are endless, but you probably already knew that if you had seen the works of  Tim Noble & Sue Webster or Rashad Alakbarov that we posted earlier.

“I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow, but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and carve and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow).”
