Shigeo Fukuda



Lunch with a Helmet On (1987 - 186 x 79 x 108 cm)
This shadow sculpture is built entirely out of 848 welded forks, knives, and spoons.

It is based on an earlier concept that Fukuda exhibited in his 1965 show,
"Toys and Things Japanese." Fukuda wanted to create a three-dimensional object in which the shadow,
as opposed to the actual form,  represented the actual object.

Fukuda was to remark that it is extremely difficult to create
a three-dimensional object in this fashion that allows light to evenly penetrate in this fashion.
