…Clocks can tell you more than the time?

Clock Art

Here’s an incredibly unique art idea: A set of 500 clocks that spells out a message once every 12 hours using focused light and the shadows from the hands of the clocks.

Unfortunately it’s only readable for someone that can read a language other than English, so I can’t tell what it says, but I’ll take their word for it that the concept does in fact work as promised.

…Michael Neff loves chalk?

Michael Neff - Chalk

Michael Neff’s Chalk series is a terrific idea in which he outlines various objects’ shadows in chalk, and then photographs them at night, giving each shadow an odd, sort of radiating glow.

So far, cities that he’s done this in include New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and a small town in Oregon, and the series is ongoing, so he has plans for more in the future.

…Shift shifts your thinking?


Shift is like the poor man’s Portal. To solve this puzzle platformer, you must ‘shift’ between yourself and your shadow.

Think of it as a 2D Paper Mario.

The controls are simple (arrow keys move, space jumps, shift shifts) so you can pick it up quickly, but you’ll soon find your brain shifting into high gear as it tries to keep track of what’s up and what’s down.

Are you ready?

…Trash can tell stories?

Dirty White Trash

Tim Noble and Sue Webster artify piles of trash so that they show a scene when their shadow is cast on a wall. It’s amazing to see what they are able to do, and I’d imagine that the pieces are even better in person as you would be able to see exactly what is creating each part of each shadow.
