Hy everybody, Happy Easter! I didn’t find any easter bunny or easter egg optical illusions, but I found this cool motorbike shadow, done by Master of Deception, Shigeo Fukuda. If your memory serves you well, you will remember that it is the guy who created that strange Piano. It works in a same way as this pile of welded forks, knives and spoons.
When you project a light behind this pile, it casts a shadow that resembles real Motorbike. Check it! I also posted a video of how it looks. As I already wrote, this shadow sculpture of a motorcycle is built entirely out of welded forks, knives, and spoons, and is based on an earlier concept Fukuda exhibited in his 1965 show “Toys and Things Japanese.” Fukuda creates a 3D object in which the shadow, as opposed to the actual form, represents the actual object. Fukuda says that it is extremely difficult to create a three-dimensional object in this fashion that allows light to evenly penetrate in this fashion. This piece utilizes 848 pieces of cutlery. Enjoy your stay! I’m sorry that this video lacks audio. Would be cool to hear some Heavy Metal music in the background. Would match this clip perfectly!
