What? Oh my goodness… none of my paper looks like this. This is the absolutely lovely work of Dutch animator turned artist . These pieces are part of an installation, titled “Plant Life”, that is currently showing in Porto, Portugal in one of the city’s oldest bookstores – Livraria Lello. Clearly, if you’re anywhere near Porto you have to go see these beauties in person. Oh, but before you do, I have to share part of the email Vera sent me… I love this:

“During my study in Fine Arts I was in the sculpture department, and kept making videos of my sculptures. That’s why I went to do animation, cause everyone said – hey you should make your sculptures move! So I did stop motion for a year, but figured out I was most interested in creating the set design, lighting and photographing the sets… not so much the animation part of it. I now focus on making “Story Objects”, sculptures that are vehicles for the imagination of the viewer. It feels like the objects contain a story, but it up to you to create your own.”
See? Love. This.

    Beautiful! The natural world is full of ‘story objects’ and this illustrates the concept so amazingly. We need to nurture the creative minds of the young and value art in all forms to solve the problems of the future – these show a way to connect thoughts. Wished I could visit!

    Love! These are so Magical! I would love to hear a story about the little garden dweller creatures that live in these wonderful little houses. Imagine what kids could come up with based on these as a writing prompt! … “sculptures that are vehicles for the imagination of the viewer. It feels like the objects contain a story, but it up to you to create your own.” perfectly worded. wonderful!!
