Amazing Shadow Art installation by Tim Noble and Sue Webster

Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary things including rubbish, to make assemblages and then point light to create projected shadows which show a great likeness to something identifiable including self-portraits. The art of projection is emblematic of transformative art.

For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behaviour is needed in order to be able to predict its actions.
