Kumi Yamashita is a 48 year old artist from Japan living in New York. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and completed her Master of Fine Arts from Glasgow School of Art.
Kumi Yamashita created this artwork by wrapping a single piece of string around various nails on a board to create the illusion of shadow.
I personally really enjoy her artwork because of the amount of skill and planning that would be required to create this artwork. Her work is an interesting infusion of both fine art and sculpture, which I appreciate because I prefer non-sculptural work.

Unfortunately, I can't find title or date information on the following three pieces, though they use the same materials as Constellation.
