Another interesting property of shadow sculptures that can be exploited in computer-aided sculpting to enhance the visual surprise is that shadow shapes depend on the geometry of the surface onto which they are cast and the viewing angle.

I liked the artistic touch: the book appears to be a dictionary opened on imaginary and imagination.

In this piece by Kumi Yamashita titled Landscape, the shadow is cast by a straight edge and the shadow is shaped by the surface.
