COOL HUNTING

Shigeo Fukuda

by Josh Rubin in Culture on 30 November 2004

Fukuda Bike

The new book, Masters of Deception, features the work of several illusionists, including the sculptor Shigeo Fukuda. Fukuda's mastery is in creating physical forms that take on a second identity when the viewing angle changes or a light is introduced. In the Lunch with a Helmet On (above), the shadow of a motorcycle is built entirely out of welded forks, knives and spoons. Movies of this piece, and several others, are available here.
