Shadow Puppets

15 Sep

Wooster Collective recently posted these cool pics of street art that play with the concept of light and shadow.

The primary concern of statue art is representational. But whatever a statue (or street art) represents can be warped by perspective – just like this statue in Kaunas, Lithuania.  During the day the piece on the wall looks like a random collection of stars. But when night falls and the shadow of the statue is projected onto that wall, a magical new artwork appears.

Speaking of shadows, here’s the Dark Knight himself. He was spotted near the corner of Iroquois Shore on Trafalgar road in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Deceptively simple. All it takes is an open mind. Thanks Wooster.
