It was a sunny summer afternoon, I was designing some user interfaces for Archon Systems in the studio. The sun shined through the window and casted interesting shadows on my sketches that were drawn on tracing paper.
All the sudden, I rediscovered the beauty of tracing paper, material that designers/artists use every day. It is translucent, gelatinous and impermeable which allows artists/designers to trace, create, communicate and capture ideas, images and sketches, in order to create something beautiful, creative and useful.
With my crazy consumption of the material as a designer/artist, I thought to myself: Why not use it for an art project?
This is how the new project started……
Here are some images that I took on the other sunny afternoon. I made a paper bouquet with this soft white translucent paper and just couldn’t stop appreciate the beauty of the material. I was totally in love with the lighting that shined through it…..
The final product
The making of paper ear mug
So here is the first concept sketch for the paper wedding dress. What do you think?
