Noble & Webster

Check out the British contemporary artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster.  Noble & Webster are part of the Young British Artists movement of the 1990's.  I had an opportunity to see some of their work on display at the Goss-Michael Foundation in Dallas.  I've never seen anything like it before.  At first glance, their work looks like a pile of trash you could find on the street.  However, when light is shone against and through their work at the right angle, it casts an incredibly intricate shadow.  Some of their work on display at Goss-Michael is sexually graphic and suggestive, but they also have other work, like that shown here, that blows your mind.
