Folded Architectural Works | Simon Schubert

Folded paper can be transformed into amazing things, but never before have I seen such a breathtaking way to creatively use paper. German artist Simon Schubert uses the paper’s properties to transform it into an architecturally-inspired piece of art. Folding paper to shape creases that compose architecture can explain how inspiration works for some people. Instead of staring at the blank piece of paper, the artist created this fascinating set of “drawings” named Papierarbeiten (meaning “paper work” in German). The series displays different paper sheets folded in patterns to create interiors, staircases, facades or corridors. No pens or colors were used to create these inspirational works – they are simply the result of the artist’s skillful play with paper.

Vivid | Sydney’s Light Festival 2012

I would like to share a few photographs from the Vivid Festival from this year, taken by me. The festival seems to be getting better each year, if you have missed out this year make sure you visit next time around. These pictures are from my first visit and do not cover all the displays and artworks. You might ask what is Vivid Sydney? – Vivid Sydney is when city transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas take over the city after dark usually starts around May and runs for two weeks.

As it colours the city with creativity and inspiration, Vivid Sydney highlights include the hugely popular immersive light installations and projections; performances from local and international musicians at Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House and the new Vivid Ideas Exchange at the MCA featuring public talks and debates from leading global creative thinkers.

‘For a night out with a difference, you can’t miss Vivid Sydney as a major celebration of all things creative.’ Vivid Sydney
