Shadow Cubes

Indianapolis artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s striking shadow cube took home the top prize at the ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She was the first artist ever to win both the contest’s popular review and critical review, taking home a $300,000 prize. With just a single lightbulb in the center, Anila’s shadow box casts impossibly elaborate shadows on gallery walls. It is currently installed at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
