The Sunday Paper #302
March 8, 2020
We are going to be exploring a variety of unique papers in my upcoming online class, Flexible Book Structures. We’ll apply konnyaku to Korean hanji to make momigami, stain Tyvek, create a book light with hanji and Japanese linen, a scroll with a leathery paper called Kraft Tex and more. Click here to watch the video trailer and read all about it. I’m hosting a free webinar on Thursday, March 12th if you’d like to learn more, or you can sign up today. There’s a bonus! If you register by March 18th and purchase the kit, I’ll send you a complimentary copy of The Paper Year.
Listen to my conversation with Robbin Ami Silverberg on Paper Talk! Robbin is a paper and book artist in Brooklyn, NY, whose content-rich artist’s books I have long admired. We had a lovely meandering conversation starting with the paper sculptures she made in college and ending up with an overview of her 30-year retrospective at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn – Read Me Like A Book– which is on view through April 9th. Fun fact: Robbin and I were on Sesame Street with a bunch of cute kids making paper in the mid-1990’s. Enjoy our conversation!
This is not paper, but I think you can see how it is inspired by origami. Issey Miyake does it again! Watch the video at this link – there’s a super clever reveal in the beginning when a giant paper screen is cut open.
Did anyone get a chance to see this at Art on Paper in NYC? It is still going on today!
