{Music Monday} Last Monday in 2012…

What would you do with over 12,000 pieces of colored construction paper? If you were Erez Horovitz or Sarah Graves, you may make a video with them. This video was created with over 12,000 pieces of construction paper shown as it was shot- no special effects and I love it! It’s a nice, last Music Monday of 2012, don’t you think?

Happy New Year Everyone! 

I’m looking forward to lots of creativity, new discoveries, & projects in 2013 … and sharing them with you of course. Thanks for stopping by this year!  ~Kristin

{Paper} Gemeo Luis paper illustrations…

I really miss living in NYC sometimes. Particularly when it comes to being able to visit art galleries & museums on a regular basis. However, the wonderful thing about the internet is that I  can travel every day & visit all sorts of interesting exhibits all over the world- with one click. I just learned about an illustrator named Gemeo Luis {via the art room plant} who makes incredible paper cut images. While looking though his website I found that I was really interested in the variety of his  exhibition category. The way “Cutting Dreams” was hung & presented was really intriguing. I would love to see it in person. I’m sure the shadows were really cool. He seems very aware of playing off of them (which is one of my favorite things about an installation exhibition). 

He seems to very much like the viewer to interact with his work (which I’m also a big fan of). I love the idea of having the book that the framed original illustration is from, underneath for the viewer to enjoy. This appears to be an exhibit  called “Drawings” in an art center.  I think I would sit in that corner & flip through his lovely books for a long time. How about you?

{Everyday Inspiration} Paper attire for a dream date…

Ever since Cardboard Man’s existence, I’ve been dreaming about what sort of outfit I could wear for a night out on the town with him. When I saw the work of Jum Nakao {via here}, my question was answered…

Incredible! Isn’t the end nuts- can you imagine? Ah, the drama… 
Now the only thing left to wonder about is where should I take Cardboard Man in our paper attire (& would the end of our date be similar)? Hmmm…. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

{Everyday Inspiration} more paper love…

Here is a little inspiration for your Wednesday. I just ran across the work of paper artist, Mandy Smith via Roadside Projects & I was immediately smitten. Not to mention the book her work is included in, Paper Craft 2 looks incredible!  Given that I’m married to “cardboard man” who makes art often dealing with interior & exterior spaces, I felt the need to share this.

Isn’t her work amazing! I just love this paper animation. Awesome!  (Chris this is for you) Hope everyone is having a great week!

{Music Monday} Fold…

Jose Gonzalez has been playing in my studio a lot lately. I was listening to it the other day when I stumbled on this book called, paper: tear, fold, rip, crease, cut. I realized that looking at the paper art, & listening to his music just seemed to make sense. It’s the kind of quiet, contemplative music that allows my mind to drift in and out of ideas.  Happy Music Monday! Hope you are having a thoughtful day.  {image via here}
