Crazy Art - Motorcycle Shadow Sculpture

This is insane . This guy made a sculpure with forks, knives, and spoons that looks nothing like a motorcycle, but the shadow looks like a dirtbike.

Click on "Launch with a helmut on" The video takes forever to load for some reason...

so if you don't want to wait, I took a screen shot link


Description from the site:

(Welded forks, knives, spoons, 1987 - 186 x 79 x 108 cm)
This shadow sculpture of a motorcycle is built entirely out of welded forks, knives, and spoons. It is based on an earlier concept that Fukuda exhibited in his 1965 show, “Toys and Things Japanese.” Fukuda wanted to create a three-dimensional object in which the shadow, as opposed to the actual form, represented the actual object. Fukuda was to remark that it is extremely difficult to create a three-dimensional object in this fashion that allows light to evenly penetrate in this fashion. Fukuda utilized 848 pieces of cutlery to construct this work.

Re: Crazy Art - Motorcycle Shadow Sculpture

in the right light, even the biggest lump of s&%t will look good... a few beers might help too.
