Still testing.

I’m still very inspired by Morris’ work, with his simple yet elegant cuts into fabric, allowing the material to do all the work. I decided to move to a lower gsm of paper (Japanese paper 35gsm) to see if it would act more fluid, like a fabric. While i liked how different this felt to everything else i have tested, i just didn’t feel as though it worked. I liked seeing how with just two cuts i could manipulate the paper dramatically, but compared to the spring with the roll of fabriano, it just couldn’t compare. I think i’m after a stronger, more solid feeling shape to pronounce it’s space. The lower gsm just isn’t working the way i want it to.
