Nick shares his work on his Instagram, and his feed is just amazing as it must be seen as a global composition of images, ordered by colors... I do screen captures as I really think it is the best way to experience it!

Kelli Anderson

Past week has been crazy, and the next one would be the same! I want to post about Kelli Anderson work since I met her in Offf Barcelona, but I only found the energy tonight, as her work is so impressive in details and technique that it could not just be a "hey, look at this project" kind of post.

The spirit in which Kelli works is important to understand her creative process. When she does a paper camera book, it is a real camera which could take pictures, with paper and all the instruction to develop the images with instant coffee !!! Here talk at Offf was even more inspiring than what I expected, and if you have time, look at her project process on her blog, or this Adobe video.
 Here comes some of her projects.

zim and zou love paper

Zim&Zou are two french artists, based in Nancy. The duo is composed of Lucie THOMAS and Thibault ZIMMERMANN. The duo decided to focus on installations using handcrafted objects made out of tangible materials such as paper, wood, thread, etc... rolling away from computer design. Anchored in craftsmanship, they create all the elements composing their installations by hand, from drawing to cutting and assembling. Their favorite material is the paper they’re manipulating to give rise to intricate and colorful sculptures. Paper inspires them for its versatility, infinite range of colors and unique textures. The flat paper sheets turned into volume are giving an installation the poetry of ephemeral material.
