Photos of Diet Wiegman's Mind-Blowing Shadow Sculptures Voted “The Most Brilliant Artist of the Netherlands” in 2009, Dutch artist Diet Wiegman is a master of his craft. But of all the amazing creations he has to his name, his work with light and shadow is most breathtaking. Using garbage, pieces of glass and other rubble, he creates a sculpture that, with the help of a light source, projects a beautiful image onto a wall. You can stare at the photos for a very long time (trust us, we have) and it still won’t make sense that a carefully arranged pile of recycled items can produce Michelangelo’s David. Although we have cause to be jealous of Wiegman’s work, it’s worth keeping in mind that he’s been doing this for a while. Here is a selection of his most impressive work, courtesy of the Diet Wiegman Archive: Wiegman is an accomplished artist in almost every respect, but it’s these shadow sculptures that have earned him international acclaim.

Sprache[Bearbeiten] Die Originalsprache des Filmes ist Plautdietsch, eine westpreußische Varietät des Niederdeutschen. Kritik[Bearbeiten] Olivier Bombarda schreibt auf den Arte-Internetseiten zu Stellet Licht, dass „auch im Nachhinein von ‚Lumière Silencieuse‘ ein faszinierendes Gefühl“ ausgehe, und dass dies ein Gefühl „der Erhebung der Seele zum Göttlichen, wie ein Gebet“ sei. Bis auf einige kritische Äußerungen (z. Einige Zitate in englischer Sprache: Auszeichnungen[Bearbeiten] Sonstiges[Bearbeiten]

Ono Field by James K Lowe /Soho, New York City. I recently attended a small lecture on what it is to work in the creative field in New Zealand vs the rest of the world. While I didn’t feel all responses were entirely honest (some more than others) it definitely provoked thought into my own situation. In the talk they mentioned no review here ever being the 100% truth. What came in conversation amongst us after the event is that we, (‘we’ being the ones who are wanting to get out of here), in New Zealand treat this place like a stepping stone. We all return home under different circumstances. What I am failing to mention is New Zealand in itself could be perfect for those who call it home. No one likes to admit failure, and that is not to say that returning home having been abroad is such (though it does feel that way doesn’t it? Begs the question, are we just big fish in a small pond? I’ve been told that our 20′s is a time for learning new skills, studying new degrees and making friends. +keep reading
