Incredible Shadow Drawings , Mangled Wires design
New York-based artist Larry Kagan creates abstract wire sculptures that transform into recognizable figures when exposed to light from a precise angle. Similar to the likes of Diet Wiegman, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Kagan's sculptures cast figurative shadows that draw the eye in amazement. Rather than focusing on the constructed steel structure, one's gaze is turned to the shadow drawings on the adjacent wall.
The artist's fascination with his chosen medium and method stems from the fact that the shadows force viewers to rethink the way they see something. More than just a simple drawing on a surface, the light sculptures or "shadow drawings" are forms of stored information extracted and revealed through light. On the artist's website, you can toggle the light on and off in his sculpture gallery to see the difference that shedding a little luminescence on mangled wires can make.
