Anamorphic Star Wars Shadow Art by Red Hong Yi

From architect and artist Red Hong Yi, observe these seven anamorphic Star Wars silhouettes, shadow art experiments created by shining a beam of light from a specific position onto different shapes arranged on wires.


Hong has made other portraits and images from everyday materials, including Aung San Suu Kyi in flowers, Adele in candle wax, Ai Weiwei with sunflower seeds, and Jamie Oliver in green foods.
