Art comes in many different and unique forms, such as sculptures, music, pottery, and abstract, to name a few, not just the simple and conventional painting and drawing. Shadow art only happens when the angle of light reaches just the right point. Along with light being angled just right, the objects casting shadows must be perfectly placed. The “chair” in the picture below casts the shadow of the man sitting on top of it; Kumi Yamashita, the artist of this sculpture, creates many more pieces of art just as intricate and breathtaking as this. Shadow art is unique because it uses everyday objects and sculptures to project shadows on the wall as a whole. Art remains just as important as ever in our tech-savvy society because it teaches creativity and provides a way for people to express themselves along with their ways of interpretation and feeling. Unfortunately, many fail to appreciate its brilliance.
