Kumi Yamashita

Kumi Yamashita is a japanese shadow artist based in New York City.

She uses various everyday objects like alphabet, paper, metal, wood, … to create beautiful shadows on a wall. Her work is the perfect example of two truths: things are not always what they seem and more metaphorically, that sometimes we have to view things in a different light to discover a new meaning. She breathes new life into simple, wall-mounted cut-outs by providing them with a light which creates the interesting shadows. Her art seems invisible till it gets transformed into arresting yet elusive images.

I think its nice and special how she experiments with shadows to create these wonderful shadowpieces in the most different and unexpected ways.
