Tim Noble and Sue Webster

During the ‘Shadow play’ field hub these artists instantly came to mind because of their Light/shadow artworks. Tim Noble and Sue Webster take ordinary found objects and construct them in  such a way when light is pointed on them a shadow of something identifiable is projected.

Dirty White Trash (with gulls), 1998.

One of their most well know pieces is Dirty White Trash (with gulls), 1998. This piece is made from 6 months worth of rubbish and 2 taxidermy seagulls which is made into an assemblage. The pile of rubbish speaks alone about the artists but when the shadow is projected the artwork becomes even stronger in showing how the pile of rubbish relates to the artists personally. I like this idea of using something personal to show meaning towards the cast shadow.

            

 

From these artists I am mostly inspired by their creativity and the thought that has gone into some of their artworks. In relation to the ‘Shadow play’ hub I feel I can take some of the techniques and ideas Tim Noble and Sue Webster use into my group when creating collaborative artwork.
