Shadow Art

Remember those old slide projectors that were used to put art history students to sleep? You'd be amazed at how easy it is to get your hands on them nowadays.

Today, we set up six slide projectors and tried our hand at making shadow art.

Most of the art was made by projecting the light through cut out paper, however there were a few other methods that turned out rather interesting.

The image above was created by layering cut out paper on top of paper. Instead of project the shadow, the paper was placed over the light so that the different thickness of paper created different values.

To create the shadow image of the ship, the students stacked junk till they got the shadow to look just right.
