Tim Noble and Sue Webster makes ordinary everyday things, like rubbish, into assemblages. They then point a light to create projected shadows which show a great likeness to something that you can identify, sometimes even indentify with, they even call them self-portraits.
The art of projection is symbolic for the transformative art. The process of transformation, from discarded waste, scrap metal or even taxidermy creatures to a recognisable image, echoes the idea of ‘perceptual psychology’ a form of evaluation used for psychological patients.
Throughout their careers they have played with the idea of how humans perceive abstract images and define them with meaning and the result is quite astonishing!
