Shadow Artworks Show Star Wars Icons Under a New Light

Australian/Malaysian artist Hong Yi’s latest project uses light and shadow to bring some of our beloved Star Wars characters to life. Using everyday, unconventional materials such as colored feathers, old jeans, chocolate cookies and aluminium foil attached to pieces of wire, Hong Yi constructed what at first seemed to be random arrangements with no pattern or sequence.


It was only when a bright light was shone behind the arrangements that their separate parts made perfect sense. Using the shadows created by the different morsels of fabric and food, Hong Yi projected images of Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and more.
