Frank Wijngaard from The Netherlands pointed me to this incredible Dutch shadow/mirror art artist called Diet Wiegman. As Frank explained, together with #Shigeo Fukuda, Diet Wiegman is a true pioneer in this kind of art-form. If you remember, we had some interesting shadow installations by #Tim Nobel and #Sue Webster, but Diet has brought this onto the next level. What he did, he introduced mirrors and light reflections as a part of the installation. Check some of the photos in this post to see what I mean. Hope you like this as much as I did!

    Not understand how something is created should never be a barrier to appreciating its beauty.

    That’s amazing! I always love the garbage sculptures that have shadows, but adding mirrors makes even better! Great illusions, V!

  27. Flynn says:

    Wow… It makes me wonder how people who make these things do it.

  28. Chris says:

    Me too Flynn.

  29. Xheia says:

    The second and third are the most awesome, and the most unbelievable (They look photoshopped?). The fourth was just the standard “shadow art”, while the first was only slightly creative… But this has a lot of potential, and it’s certainly better than the shadow art.

  30. Tomas says:

    These photos present the shadows as the light bearers and put me under a charm. This art talks loudly and convincingly. Thank you for the sharing.

  33. SwishSwishStab says:

    This guy has waaaaaaaaaayyyyy too much free time. Most of getting these right would just be trial and error. But it’s still pretty cool!
