Shadow Art by Tim Noble & Sue Webster

SPOTLIGHT: Shadow Art Created from Junk by Tim Noble & Sue Webster

Mind blown. Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary objects – like rubbish – to make sculptures which really don’t look like anything. The magic happens when they point a light at them and project the shadows onto the walls.

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.
