Well FUCK, it IS a pantsuit.
Hey there, I'm Lan. I work as a barista at a major organic grocery chain and blog about my life. I'm into fashion, and I have a secret passion for tea. If you'd like to hang around, welcome!
What at first look like delicate works of carved porcelain are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms by Beijing artist Li Hongbo. A book editor and designer, the artist became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures. Hongbo recently had a solo show at Dominik Mersch Gallery in Australia who made the videos above, and you can see much more of his work on their website.
Relic My piece for the Message in a Bottle show at Light Grey Art Lab! Actually, it’s for a little show within the show—called Searching for Secrets (also the theme) and each participant in my MAKE 2013 workshop created an awesome piece for it with a letter hidden inside! Everyone’s pieces are arranged in order, so once you find the letter in each image, they spell out a message together! Take a look and figure out the message for yourself!(can you find my letter?!)
I’ve been reading a lot of cyberpunk recently (Snowcrash, The Diamond Age, Neuromancer) so I’ve been itching to draw some dystopian sci-fi. I wanna draw more! Also as part of this project, I challenged all my participants to use informal subdivision to help create their sketches! You can see mine above, and read more on my blog!
