Absolutely amazing shadow art produced by Kumi YAMASHITA.

These beautiful silhouettes are created by simple objects and lighting only. Definitely not a simple planning, though... Really fascinating and therapeutic.

The above work is Building Block, 1997 exhibited at Boise Art Museum in Idaho. The building blocks of various widths on the wall, lit from the right, casts a silhouette of a woman.
