Kumi Yamashita’s art functions as the visible reminder of invisible art. From simple beginnings, she invites us to reassess the unpredictable relationship between what we expect to see and our actual perception. Much of Kumi Yamashita’s artwork is constructed with everyday things such as alphabets, building blocks, thread, nails, credit card rubbings and light installations. As a result of the process these ordinary material objects are transformed into arresting yet elusive images. Separate pieces may connect together in a shadow, and a simple piece of paper can create an endless variety of profiles. Kumi’s methods and materials go beyond the confines of traditional media, transforming one medium into something else. For example, footprints on a sheet compose a face; blocks of various heights cast a realistic human shadow; a single piece of thread creates a subtly modulated portrait. With great attention to detail, Yamashita’s works are exhaustively complex and precise - yet they remain deeply human. (source: Dillon Gallery)
Not only does this California Kingsnake at the Moscow Zoo have two heads, it’s also an albino. Zoo officials say two-headed snakes are a one-in-a-million occurrence and usually don’t survive in the wild.
