i’m jealous of eva black

I can manage a paper crane, but that’s where my folding skills end! I’m in awe of LA based artist/graphic designer Eva Black and her huge installation of paper triangles, titled quite appropriately Folded.

“I began the piece by collecting paper, using all found paper – paper that was given to me, paper I had collected over time, paper from old artworks, paper bags, or paper I bought from old bookstores. The piece has about 3,500 triangles and is about 12 x 13′.

It’s fascinating working with a medium in which a new tactile experience is explored. A medium that is often regarded as common, but has also created strong connections with its viewers. Each has a story to tell, from old maps to smaller paper remnants. These have been taken from their discarded state and folded three-dimensionally to further their transformation. A transformation that finds order in its details. A transformation into something beautiful.”

She’s also a very talented graphic designer – look at the show cards she designed for FoldedGah! So gorgeous!
