These topographical paper cards of the Great Lakes and San Francisco Bay by Crafterall are real purty. Each map is cut from five layers of high quality, acid-free cardstock and you can request special orders in 20 additional colors. Seriously, only $30?

One Thousand Means of Escape

January 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

New work from Berlin-based artist Astrid Bin, described as “one thousand paper airplanes are suspended in flight, like flocking birds, or swarming insects.” Reading her bio I’ve decided she’s probably a pretty cool lady:

S. Astrid Bin is a British-Canadian interdisciplinary artist. Past endeavors have included baiting and then unbaiting 100 mousetraps with her hands, making a picture of a pigeon from 538 pieces of toast, documenting an attempt at making a million dollars in a year, locking herself in a disused bank vault for ten nights, making light into a drawing medium, sending hundreds of postcards to an empty building, shaving her head, and occupying a phone booth for 24 hours. She likes to play with, manipulate, study, test and provoke the audience in meaningful ways. She has received death threats, hate mail and international press.

Oritsunagumono by Takayuki Hori

Two origami posts in a row? Yes, my friends. Each more incredible than the last. Behold the work of Japanese student Takayuki Hori which won first place in the 2010 Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Competition. The collection, entitled Oritsunagumono (things folded and connected) involves the skeletons of eight endangered species which are delicately printed on translucent paper and then folded in an origami fashion to represent the animals. A poignant and grim reminder of life’s fragility. What a brilliant project. (via iain claridge / spoon & tamago)
