Dancing Shadow Sculptures by Dpt. and Laurent Craste

Ceramacist Laurent Craste and digital agency Dpt. created this interactive art installation called 'Parade', for the Chromatic festival in Montreal.

"The installation consists in an imposing wooden cube. A lamp attached to the top of the structure dimly lights a livid and stripped scene where two porcelain vases lie on a white dresser. The lighting highlights their shadows on the wall. As soon as someone pushes the lightbulb, the shadows of the vases come to life and animate, as if by magic, to the rhythm of the swinging light source."

"There is indeed a hidden projector, and we are tracking the yellow light, getting coordinates (X, Y, Z) that are reproduced in a 3D environment (Unity 3D) in real time. Generating the visuals with a real hanging light would not have allowed for the same element of surprise/magic that we were able to achieve with these more intricate animations, we would just have had static shadows following the light source."

Fluorescent Bodyscapes by John Poppleton

Photographer and artist John Poppleton created these gorgeous nature scenes painted with fluorescent pigments on the backs of female models, who are then photographed under black light for his 'Black Light Bodyscapes' series.

"I’ve always been in awe and wonder of the beauty found in nature. Inspired by the colors and textures found in sunsets. The excitement and anticipation of the next lightning strike with its thunderous heart pounding report. Majestic waterfalls to sublime mountain skylines with their reflections in the still lakes found beneath them. From the eerie allurement of the Northern Lights to the cosmic artistry seen throughout the universe."

"Black Light Bodyscapes combines the beauty of the female form with the splendor of God’s creations found in this world and worlds beyond. Using temporary fluorescent materials the scenes are painted directly on the skin and photographed in modest poses to create a piece of art that is as unique as you are."

Papercut by Bovey Lee

Hong Kong born, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based artist Bovey Lee created these amazing paper cuts.

"Power, sacrifice, and survival are the underlying narratives in my cut paper works. Within the parameters of these three subjects, I create layered and dramatic stories referencing my life experiences, response to headline news, and concerns for urban and environmental issues."

"I hand cut each work on Chinese rice paper with silk backing. I define what I do as drawing with a knife. My life long love affair with art begins with practicing Chinese calligraphy and pencil drawing since age ten. When I cut paper, it is a visceral reaction and natural response to my affection for precision, detail, and subtlety."

"I use fairly simple tools and materials. To create the digital templates that guide me to cut, I use Photoshop, Illustrator, and a printer. For cutting I use Chinese xuan (rice) paper, X-Acto knife and blades and cutting mat."

"My creative process is three-fold; drawing, digital rendering, and hand-cutting. I form ideas by sketching before creating a digital template. The template is a visual guide that consists of downloaded images, my own photographs, scans from magazines and books, and vector graphics. The final step is for me to hand cut the image with an X-Acto knife."
