Cool Find: Shadow Play
I adore double imagery, things that look like one thing yet are in fact another. And use of shadow too. The interplay of an object's shadow. A trick of the eye. I really admire this artpieceUlla posted. The clip shows Hans Peter Feldmann's Shadowplay at 303 Gallery in Chelsea, NYC. September 12 - October 17, 2009.
"A simple, elegant sculptural installation of light, shadow, and found objects." Check out the review at artblogNY.com
And of course, there are the boggling pieces of junk casting realistic shadows of other than what they are made of by Tim Noble (no relation) and Sue Webster. Some are crude and unpleasant but all are ingenious.
