Lunch With A Helmet On
Category: Shadows and Mirrors | Added: June 9, 2009 | 29 comments
Another illusion from Shigeo Fukuda, in this one he's welded together 848 knives, forks and spoons to produce an object the shadow cast from which forms the perfect shape of a motorcycle on the ground.

This is an amazing piece by Shigeo Fukuda, and contrary to what some people are saying, it is not faked. Check out some of his other works; he truly was a master of illusion! It seems impossible to do what he has done, but it's all a matter of perspective

This is a genuine artwork. This is an inspirational art called Shadow Sculpture. The ultimate goal is to create an art that is cannot be defined by its appearance but tells a whole lot meaning when the shadow being projected. It's genius.

Oh... Wow

The artist's name is Shigeo Fukuda. Theres a reason why everyones calling it fake, because he has clearly blown everyones' mind away. That, ladies and gentlemen, is called greatness. This is beyond art, this is simply amazing.

may i know what is the meaning of this art?
Posted by delmonico on December 31, 2015
Those of you who think this is photoshopped really suffer from a lack of imagination and appreciation of creative peoples inventiveness. While not easy in execution and requiring real cleverness to conceive, the method seems clear; draw motorcycle outline on floor, set up strong light source and then methodically add the cutlery, one piece at a time so that the shadows cover the correct part of the floor. Also, I would Google the artist to see some of the other clever installations by him. BTW-All are regularly exhibited in museums-real hard to fake.
