Moneygami by Hasegawa Yosuke

February 16, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Right on the heels of last weeks moneygami post, this great work from artist Hasegawa Yosuke who folds assorted currency into little hat-wearing figures, and apparently if you have an iPhone, yeah, there’s an app for this complete with folding instructions. (via green chair press)

Architect Ryuji Nakamura thought of a brilliant way to convert his screen-mounted webcam into a miniature paper house that creates the illusion of turning him into a giant. Complete with tiny furniture. (via spoon & tamago)

Artist Alex Dipple meticulously cuts periods, full stops, stars and asterisks from newspapers—frequently just a few millimeters wide—to create these elaborate textured collages. More on Behance.

Christopher Jobson

An installation by Andrea Mastrovito using 3,307 individual black and white photocopies that were pieced together to create the view outside the gallery walls. Incredible. (thnx, chelsea!)

Paper Lakes

January 28, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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.
