Called “Parade“, this interactive art installation is designed by Dpt. and Laurent Craste for the Chromatic festival in Montreal. The installation is placed inside a wooden cube with two porcelain vases lie on a white dresser. An industrial light is hanging in front of vases and highlights vases’ shadows on the wall. Nothing looks special untill someone pushes the light, the shadows of the vases come to life and animate, as if by magic, to the rhythm of the swinging light source. And the real secret to make all those happen is the hidden projector which tracks the yellow light, getting coordinates (X, Y, Z) that are reproduced in a 3D environment to generate the dancing shadow.
British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster skilfully skirt the boundaries between beauty and the shadowier aspects of humanity, playing with our perceptions as well as our notions of taste. The duo forms abstract works from, which upon first glance, look like nothing other than straightforward piles of trash, such as household rubbish, scrap metal and taxidermy animals. With light illuminating the pile, it to create a shadow image entirely different to that seen when looking directly at the deliberately disguised pile. The meaning behind these work is to play with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning. The result is surprising and powerful as it redefines how abstract forms can transform into figurative ones. This is serious and the entertaining. Hope you enjoy it as same as I do. [source]
