Tokyo-born artist Maiko Takeda works with shape, shadow, pattern, and light to create unique art pieces that are a mix of high fashion and art installations.
Her series entitled Cinematography showcase the artist ability to use shadow in a completely unexpected way. This body of work is a collection of art that adorne her female models and cast detailed shadows onto the figures. To create the shadows Takeda incorporates silk screen and pierced metal which she has hand drilled thousands of holes into.
The resulting shadows depicing cat faces, eyes, lips, and other symboles are worn as jewelry.
