Annie Vought Recreates Handwritten Letters with Papercutting

November 4, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Painstakingly sliced sentences by Oakland artist Annie Vought. In some of her works the lines on the paper provide a natural structure for a single piece and in others individual words are glued to pins. How obsessive compulsively awesome. See also Jill Sylvia. (via the best part)

Jill Sylvia spends a lot of time with a knife

I think there’s a chad joke in here somewhere, but I’m too tired to find it. Jill Sylvia takes old ledger books and meticulously eviscerates them square by square, page by page, until she’s left with a delicate ledger skeleton. Papercraft meets process art. (via triangulation)

Paper Alphabet for Sculpture Today

October 13, 2010

Christopher Jobson

From the AIGA Archives, a beautiful alphabet designed by Sonya Dyakova for Phaidon in 2007.

The alphabet sprung from wanting to highlight what makes sculpture different from other art forms. By cutting and folding a flat sheet of paper, a three-dimensional alphabet was devised. A considerable amount of effort went into crafting and arranging the letterforms, each one playfully varying in shape, the depth remaining constant.

The legibility of the type is greatly influenced by the angle from which it is viewed. When viewed directly from above, the edges of the paper create outlines, making the letterforms easy to read.
