Meg Hitchcock | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

In my text drawings I deconstruct the word of God by cutting letters from sacred writings and rearranging them to form a passage from another holy book. I may cut letters from the Bible and reassemble them as a passage from the Koran, or use letters cut from the Torah to recreate an ancient Tantric text. The individual letters are glued to the paper in a continuous line of type, without spaces or punctuation, in order to discourage a literal reading of the text. By bringing together the sacred writings of diverse traditions, I create a visual tapestry of inspired writings, all pointing beyond specifics to the universal need for connection with something greater than oneself.

The labor-intensive aspect of my work is a meditation practice as well as a personal form of devotion.

"After a short introdfuction, each of our 17 sudents got a square of white printer paper (297mm x 297mm) and within two hours had to come back with three images, takenb by a digital camera, that represent them as artists and designers. The only material to be used is light; either artificial or sun light. They can crumple, fold, cut, do whatever to the paper to create these images."

Papermaking in Puli, Taiwan, at the Guangxing Paper Mill

"The video shows a large sheet of paper being pulled and later dried on a hot surface. This seems to be a machine-assisted process of hand-papermaking. There's also a still of a beater and some stills of work created using this paper."

Artworks Made from a Creased Sheet of Paper

Artworks Made from a Creased Sheet of Paper | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"In his paper art series, Schubert meticulously folds sheets of paper, creating a very shallow relief or bas-relief. When the lighting is right, the paper comes to life with depth and contrast. Each ‘sculpture’ is made from a single sheet of paper using only creases and folds. No additional colour is added to the works.


Schubert cites his inspiration most often comes from literature, philosophy, film and fine art. He said a defining moment of inspiration came from the work of Joseph Beuys, which opened Schubert’s eyes that art could be, ‘more than just something decorative and influence into life directly’"

Origami lamp lets you fold your own nightlight

Origami lamp lets you fold your own nightlight | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"

This clever lamp from German designer Mirco Kirsch has you doing all the assembly — but not with screws and pegs. Instead, the sheet metal must be bent into shape with your bare hands.


You don't have to be Superman to do it, though: The metal is pre-perforated and should yield quite easily — although you may want to practice on a paper model first. No soldering or wiring is necessary other than plugging in the LED module."



Chris Lott's insight:

Not really paper, but paper/origami inspired...so where else could I put it?
