Tim Noble and Sue Webster put objects together in abstract clusters, shine a light on them and figurative shadows appear on the wall behind the sculptures. I like that we can see the clustered objects, and the resulting shadow image.
If I were to make a shadow puppet film, it would be great to display it inside a large wooden box that you enter: the insides of the box are decorated in such a way as to make you feel like you’re inside the puppet theatre. The viewer becomes part of the exhibit by watching the film – a projector, linked to a camera inside the box, could project the image of the viewer inside the meta-puppet theatre watching the film onto a large screen framed by a puppet theatre. Makes me think of Escher’s drawings.
