Tim Noble & Sue Webster
Since the late 1980s, collaborators Tim Noble and Sue Webster have been known for their shadow sculptures built from objects like household garbage, taxidermy, and scrap metal. Under directed light, the assemblages cast recognizable shadows, often self-portraits. In a series of Noble and Webster's light sculptures, they use computer light sequencing to flash messages of love and hate, referencing shop-front-type signage and carnival shows of British seaside towns. Merging form and anti-form, high culture and anti-culture, their anti-monuments explore psychology and the way we attach meaning to images.
