Origami Shadow Art of Actual Faces
Back in 2011, famed shadow artist Kumi Yamashita, was commissioned by American Express to create a unique work of art for their Tribeca, New York office lobby.

She first invited all American Express employees to be a part of her installation by taking a photo of their profile. Since the size of the space only allowed for 22 pieces, Kumi then chose 22 employee faces. Then, right on site, she worked with shadows and light to create these origami style pieces that, when hit with just the perfect light source, reveal actual faces!
