19:30 Stacks

September 6th, 2011

19:30 Stacks is a new series of sculptures by Aleksandra Domanović. They’re actually stacks of A4 and A3 paper with parts of photos printed on their side. To create this effect, Aleksandra made huge PDF files which she printed with an inkjet printer set to “border-less printing”. You can actually print one yourself: download this 5555 A4 pages PDF, print it out, place 1500 empty pages on top and 1500 at the bottom of the printed stack. Voila, you have one of the stacks.

Undef Printer

August 29th, 2011

Here’s an other receipt printer project by undef: undef printer. This time you can decide what it should print, well actually you will have to write some simple code to do so. I’ve made variation of my TT pattern, which I did for the Pa++ern project 2 years ago. Anyway, you can try it out till October 8th, it is part of the “Tra me e ciò che è in me” exhibition in Grono, Switzerland.

Here’s my “code”, I guess there’s a smarter way to achieve my pattern.

Time Print Machine

August 4th, 2011

Time Print Machine by Paul Ferragut is a printing system using felt pen on blotting paper. The felt-pen ink bleed in the paper for a duration relative to the grey value of a pixel. Every “time stain” gradually recreates any images in a pointillist style. The aim of this project is to emphasize the making process, it can take 20 hours to print one color on a A2 paper.

I guess it won’t take long anymore till USB sticks will become disposable, maybe they even are already. The Russian design studio Art. Lebedev already designed one: Flashkus. It’s made of cardboard so can write directly on it. I like them.

Paper Tattoos

December 21st, 2010

On a Sailors Grave (no roses grow) is a paper tattoo made by Jacob Dahlstrup Jensen. He used a tattoo machine like a pen on heavy watercolorpaper to create a three-dimensional line by disordering the paper structure.

Agenda 2011

December 17th, 2010

Julie Joliat designed this Agenda 2011. It has over 50 “connect the dots” puzzles which will reveal different famous art pieces, from Jan van Eyck to Damien Hirst. But it has some nice extras like maps, popular holidays, conversion charts … I really like its simplicity.
