Kumi Yamashita: Origami Shadow Art

Artist Kumi Yamashita creates amazing shadow art by creasing square sheets of origami paper so that, when they're lit from the side by a single light source they reveal beautiful facial profiles. "I sculpt shadow with light or sometimes light with shadow" she explains, "but both function in essentially the same manner. I take objects and place them in relation to a single light source. The complete artwork is therefore comprised of both the material (the solid objects) and the immaterial (the light or shadow)."
