With wood, metal, plastic cans, old Mc Donalds bags, packets of cigarettes, dildos and all kinds of rubbish, british artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster works to project shadows of people in different positions. With their transformative art, Noble and Webster shows an idea of what they call “perceptual psychology” and to show the resemblance with self-portraits. Every little piece is put and set to place to make the shadow look exactly like a human being.
They have worked throughout their careers by the idea of how we see abstract things and tries to define them with meaning. It is also a work of contrasts; form and anti-form, culture or non-culture, male and female, craft and rubbish, sex and violence.
