Crumpled paper silhouette

Just tried this technique out for a bit of fun.  Just some scrap paper, some creases and a suitably placed light source.  It works best with sunlight, but as today's weather is a little overcast, I have had to make do with a table lamp.

Already my mind is conjuring up all sorts of possibilities!

Watch this space for more pictures . . . when the sun comes back.  Could be a while!  :-)


  1. Clever! Such a ceative spririt you have Brian. Reminds me of the shadow sculptures by Tim Noble and Sue Webster

  2. ....but with far more good taste!!

  3. Thanks Roy. Yes I have seen those sculptures. My experiments will be much smaller. The light source is the main problem. If I was to display any of these at an exhibition I would need to supply a light of some kind. Something to think about.

  4. Fascinating. Just as well you got it done this week, the sun has finished for this year.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.
