June// 3D pattern

As an inspiration for following sample i have used billboard 3D screen as we can very often see on the roads. I found it good idea to connect it with furniture. I have manage with a bit of struggle  to make a pattern by laser machine in two wooden screens. Later on i stick them together, and cut into small stripes. The plan was to hang it all together in order to make it move, and this way we could se two patterns from different perspective. Unfortunately i did it i little bit wrong and it took me a bit of time how does really work. My sample didn’t make me so happy as i was in the beginning. Other colleagues, students has seen it as very interesting object, but for myself it put a question mark in my head. The whole picture wasn’t much aesthetic even if i was trying all my bests.

January// Kasia Kmita and her paper cutouts

Paper “Cutouts” includes the visual identification codes and the bold statement of global brands with intensive labor in techniques of traditional paper cut-outs suggest the need to define the phenomenon of the new folk. Kmita combining traditional hand cut-outs performed with symbols of pop culture, draws on themes from the world of media and advertising on the same principle as the old folk artist were showing  motifs from the natural world which they were surrounded.

Each work can be observed repetitive in composition; the black outline of the cutout is entered motif taken from pop culture. Kmita converts her way in designs from cutouts of Lowicz.

By visiting two days show in Warsaw and what really called my attention was Brand Moho Design.

The idea behind the brand is to find new directions in the creation of objects using the new language of design.
