This morning I fly out to South Korea – super exciting! It seems 2013 is all about Asia for Paperform.
Alongside a host of talented international paper engineers, I have been invited to exhibit my work in Seoul as part of the World Pop Up Art Exhibition to be held at Art Centre IDA.
On display will be the whole gamut of my pop-up creations over the years including my recent collab with Google AUS which has just been released. So much preparation has gone into getting ready for the show. Amazingly, the curators are reconstructing the ginormous pop-up set I designed for Romance Was Born. Can’t wait to see that in action again!
To top it all off, my paper mask creation ‘FUTURE // PAST’ was chosen as the poster for the event which is a great honour.
DFAT has put a post about the show on their website HERE.
After a week in Seoul I’m off to Japan for a well earned break. More soon…
The April issue of desktop Magazine has just landed in my letterbox and it looks like a sharp edition.
I was asked to create imagery to accompany Clinton Duncan’s article – I took this as my chance to finally collaborate with my super talented photographer friend Anna Pogossova.
You have to check her work out! Below is what we came up with.
I was stoked to be featured in the March 2013 issue of Inside Out Magazine. I was interviewed by design guru and “Super Foodie” Lee Tran Lam about my work and studio. It was a fantastic experience!
Below is a pic of the spread – click on for a high res version if you’d like to read it.
Lee Tran also uploaded some extra images on their blog that didn’t make it in HERE. Thanks guys!
I’m leaving Sydney this morning to travel to the Philippines as an invited speaker at Graphika Manila design conference which is being held this weekend.
Can’t wait to share my work and meet the the design savvy punters from that part of the world. Looking forward to a few days of travel away from my desk – I’ve been working nonstop all summer on an exciting creation for Google – but more on that shortly.
I’ll report back with some images of my adventures. Manila here I come!
My recent show New Platonic has just come down from the gallery wall so I thought I would get at least some of it up here to share.
Quite a few more of the works have yet to be photographed and I’ll get to documenting this in the way it deserves shortly with dimensions/materials etc.
My starting point of exploration for this body of work was the Platonic Solids and the whole premise of the show revolved around the use of paper only – no glue!
This project has opened up a door into a whole new world of exploration for me which is really exciting.
In the meantime, check out my mates Tanja’s post on the opening night. Enjoy!
So proud to receive the award for Best Visual Artist of 2012 at the FBI SMACs.
To be recognised by your peers for doing what you love in a city you love is totally awesome.
Thank you Sydney!
