The Sunday Paper #108, May 22, 2016
Paper of the Week: Sekishu from Hiromi Paper
Here’s a fabulous video from Hungary’s World Wildlife Fund. Check it out!
This is a lovely story about a mother who figured out how to engage and employ her autistic son. Their business is Papercatz. Aren’t their paper flowers gorgeous, and they look so real!
Christophe Guberan adapted an inkjet printer to print patterns that contort pieces of paper into three-dimensional forms that he calls hydro-folds. How cool is that? You can see the paper transforming in the video at the link.
Many consider wasps to be the first papermakers. Have you seen this experiment? Mattia Menchetti fed wasps colored paper and guess what happened?!
Here’s a link where you can view the catalog for Just One Look – an amazing exhibition of artists’ books at the University of Washington (I’m honored that my book Vertices is included in the show). And if you’d like to own a copy, you can purchase it here.
