Belgian artist Fred Eerdekens creates his unique art by making legible sentences from tangled messes of wires. When light fills the rooms and the shadows are projected onto the walls, these delicate sentiments are revealed to the viewer in beautiful calligraphy.
The secret messages spell out things such as: “Too moved to talk” or “A very short story” to the elusive: “My emotions escaped from language.” These delicate works of art are a unique and subtle way for the artist to express himself.
Some of artists other forays into light and shadow works include using puffy masses of suspended ‘clouds’ to spell out messages on the adjacent wall through light reflections and other such ideas of visual trickery.
By playing with light and shadows the artist is using a readily available, natural resource as something to express himself.
