This art piece looks like a DNA type puzzle when I saw it for the first time. I was actually fascinated with the colorful jumble of balls that seemed to be arranged in a bizarre formation. However, this artwork changes when the lights are turned off and it’s positioned at a specific angle from the light source. I was absolutely impressed with the shadow art that is shown on the wall.
About the Vitruvian Man
Teodosio Sectio Aurea created this enigmatic shadow art. It is consists of 350 little steel balls. When this art piece design is lit from the correct viewpoint by a light source, it will reveal a shadow of Leonardo Da Vinci’s popular sketch from the 15th century on the wall. This design is popularly used as an implicit representation of the human body’s symmetry and more broadly, of the cosmos.
