Shadow Art by Kumi Yamashita

24 03 2013

I’ve posted before about the work of Rashad Alakbarov. He “paints” with light through apparently randomly suspended coloured items to build up beautiful composites. More here.

He also uses shapes to build up a composite shadow, totally unpredictable from the individual items.

StumbleUpon (if you’ve not already tried it Deliberately Delicious, you’re missing out!) lead me to Piccsy – somewhere I don’t really linger, but do dip into occasionally. There I found that Kumi Yamashita takes the concept up a notch. Enjoy…

What an awesome concept.

Kind of puts the childhood issue of seeing monsters in the shadows into perspective. The way Yamashita constructs the images from totally disjointed objects is fantastic.
