Kumi Yamashita :: Playing With Shadows

by Ya Head Designs

It’s unbelievable what Kumi Yamashita can do with something as banal as the shadow. Her ability to play with light and create the illusion of complex silhouettes by arranging and sculpting simple objects is truly inspiring. It makes me wonder all the possibilities…

“I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow, but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and carve and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow).” – Kumi Yamashita
