Sculpted Metal Strainers Create Beautiful Portraits With Shadow And Light

Spanish artist Isaac Cordal worked with regular metal cooking strainers, or colanders, sculpting them into mask-like mesh grids, to create these stunning cast-shadow portraits.

Cordal sought ought city street lights to shine down on the sculpted mesh wire, intending for the lamp light to enlarge the faces, as a projector does a slide. [Neatorama - Images via Isaac Cordal]

The name of the project is "Cement Bleak."

Urban public installation with lights projecting shadows in Dalston, London.
