In January 2000, artist Julie Green was working at the University of Oklahoma when she noticed an unusual menu in her morning paper.
“Three fried chicken thighs, 10 or 15 shrimp, tater tots with ketchup, two slices of pecan pie, strawberry ice cream, honey and biscuits, and a Coke.”
At the time, Oklahoma had the highest per capita execution rate in the country. And the morning after an execution, newspapers statewide would post death notices, detailing the inmate’s life and crimes, the time and manner of his or her death – and the final meal.

With the help of geometric sculptures, artist Fabrizio Corneli constructs intricate shadow-images. The artist plays with light and its reflective abilities to create human faces, animals and geometric patterns. It may seem like the artist’s work is made by simply cutting a stencil into a metal object, but the artist’s shadow pieces are actually made by placing specifically shaped, abstract metal objects on the projection surface, with the light bouncing off and through those objects, to cast shadows which mimic features such as eyes, mouths, or even agirl on a swing.
The end result is an intangible piece of art; yes, the sculptural elements are tangible, but the image, the actual focus of the piece cannot be touched without distorting it, nor can it be seen without the use of light.
With the help of mathematics, the artist is able to carefully position his abstract sculptures in a way that will optimally project the result of the light reflection. As the artist states, “light is energy which creates form”; all the artist has to do is create a vessel into which light can travel, and then step back, to allow the light itself to form its own work of art. Light not only reveals the shape, but also creates it.
The results are almost like non-images, as in, the shadows on the walls are residues of what should be there, or was there, or could be. The images create an environment of the anamorphosis, combining science and poetry, mathematics and art.
