Amazing Portraits Made From Thousands of Hammered Nails by David Foster
Amazing Shadow Sculptures by Tim Noble and Sue Webster
From discarded wood, welded scrap metal, broken tools, cigarette packets, soda cans and piles of trash, Tim Noble and Sue Webster make assemblages and then point light to create projected shadows of people standing, sitting, smoking, drinking or anything easily recognizable. Every debris is precisely set in place, taking into consideration its distance from the wall, and its angle with the spotlight. The result is surprising and powerful as it redefines how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones.

More artwork by Tim Noble and Sue Webster can be found in their gallery.
