Art that requires a very specific light source

And now I love art again.   I found this over at Environmental Graffiti, and it’s a sculpture from artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster.

Right about now, you should be like “But Gynomite, this isn’t that cool looking.  It’s just more po-mo bullshit!”

Here’s what that same sculpture looks like in a dark room with a light shined on it in a specific way:

That's the sculpture there on the left

This piece is called He/She, and it’s part of a 10 year project of these two artists, which is all about creating shadow art from unexpected things.  (And yes, these guys are both peeing.)

Come see more!

white trash (with gulls)

This is White Trash (with gulls), and it was one of their first trash pieces.  There’s tons to say about living in a consumerist society and making more and more trash without a care in the world, but besides that, it looks awesome.

This is “Metal Fucking Rats with a Heart-Shaped Tail”, obviously.  Go to the site linked above to see more.  It’s rather amazing.
