LEGO Artwork Casts Shadow Of Yoda Or Darth Vader, Depending On The Light
By Dorothy Tan, 18 Oct 2013
Design studio Drzach & Suchy has created an awesome installation artwork for Google’s Zurich office—titled “The Force”, the piece consists of a white wall that has been embedded with 16,000 LEGO bricks.
Taking 10 hours to complete, the artwork uses a “light-dependent, textured pixel technique”—a signature of Drzach & Suchy—that casts different shadow images depending on the light shining on it.
In this case, the image depicted by the installation fluctuates between that of characters Yoda and Darth Vader from the Star Wars movies.
By varying the location of the light source, the shadow image created by the many LEGO bricks—which functions as “shadow casting panels”—shifts from one silhouette to the other.
View a time-lapse behind-the-scenes video of how “The Force” was made.
