If you’ve never seen the shadow art of Tim Noble and Sue Webster you’re missing out. These artists literally shine light onto piles of junk and produce shadow images of people. You can check out their website here but keep in mind, there are a few inappropriate words and images.
Meanwhile, if you are like me (and most art teachers) you already have a box of junk in your classroom. A box of junk can serve so many purposes. Everything from having students create Rube Goldberg contraptions to recycled art projects. However, after viewing Tim and Sue’s work, you’ll know exactly what you’ll want to do with that junk… Have your students create shadow art.
