tiny profiles

28Sep10

Little squares of color with precise folds = tiny profile shadows on the wall. Kumi Yamashita executed this concept beautifully. the 40 profiles are of 40 New Mexicans. I’ve been thinking a lot about the different ways to manipulate a shadow onto a wall, this project introduced the idea of subtle folds…if only I was an oragami enthusiast..

Fragments, 2009

Her other works are also beautiful…more emphasis on shadows but also on different ways to get an image onto a flat surface. could not copy&paste from her website, but the website is linked above. czech dat out.
