New Shadow Sculptures by Tim Noble and Sue Webster


At first glance, the works of a London-based duo appear to be odd clumps of trash claiming to be sculptures, but the real art appears when light is shined upon them. That must have sparked your curiosity, so read on to find out what these artworks look like!

London-based artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster recently revealed their latest shadow sculptures in an exhibit titled Nihilistic Optimistic, their fist solo show since 2006. At first, the six large-scale sculptures may look like some strange hodgepodge of discarded wood and other scraps, but don’t judge it until the final touch is added. Once they are illuminated by a light projector, the real artworks are revealed. Take a look:
