Shadow by Kaarina Kaikkonen is an art installation that is inspired by outdoor laundry lines. Although it has been created over various landscapes, this art installation boasts a constant theme. It is made up of numerous taut ropes suspended above grass, cement and more, as well as varying men's shirts. A stunning sight to behold, the lines can either be found on the straight and narrow or more sculptural in scope.

Through this art installation, the Finnish artist comments on the status of the working man as well as the idea behind stereotypes and the use of common uniforms for civilized societies. Spotted across Finland, Shadow by Kaarina Kaikkonen is both breathtaking and thought-provoking. It also literally casts a shadow in order to shed light on these subjects.
