Asynchronist: A Collage Art Collaboration Between Alex Eckman-Lawn and Jason Chen

Asynchronist: A Collage Art Collaboration Between Alex Eckman-Lawn and Jason Chen

I have been a long time fan of collage art and the many ways that you can manipulate and juxtapose paper, whether it is made from maps, layered photographs, or old school from several different sources. I finally had the pleasure of seeing the talent behind two artists that I had admired from afar in person, Alex Eckman-Lawn, and Jason Chen, at this year's Art on Paper Exhibition. Separately they have unique approaches to collage art and display, Alex utilizes a layering technique along with collage art that provides depth to each of his pieces, while Jason uses multiple photos of the same subject and weaves them together to create an illusion of displaced time. Last year, they debuted their collaborative efforts showcase entitled “Asynchronist” and now they continue to blow me away with their latest series. Enjoy!

Flat-pack Lumber Table is Made Entirely From Cardboard

Flat-pack Lumber Table is Made Entirely From Cardboard

Seoul-based studio PESI has designed a side table using planks of cardboard that have the appearance of wood. ‘PESI’, which stands for Possibility, Essential, Standpoint, Interpretation, is a design studio founded by two designers (Byounghwi Jeon, Seungjoon Song). Their creations are based on our motto: "Find new possibility by reinterpreting an object from our point of view without losing its essentials." With that, they have created the Lumber table to explore the potential of cardboard as a material for short-use furniture. The table is designed to be easily assembled and, once no longer needed, disposed of. At the same time, the designers wanted the table's aesthetic to be different from other cardboard furniture, which they said was usually folded or laminated.

Life-sized Iron Man Papercraft for Silicon Valley Comic Con

Life-sized Iron Man Papercraft by Owen Gildersleeve

For the love of paper folding, this may be from a while back, but it's pretty awesome! British paper artist Owen Gildersleeve in collaboration with Thomas Forsyth were approached by the organizers of the Silicon Valley Comic Con to create a life-size paper sculpture of Iron Man for their first event at the 30,000 capacity San Jose Convention Centre. The model was built in separate parts in London over a four week period and then the individual components were shipped out to San Jose, California, where we pieced the model together live at the show over the course of the three day event. The sheer amount of time and effort that went into this papercraft is absolutely mind boggling.

Life-Size Cardboard Figures by Warren King

Life-Size Cardboard Figures by Warren King Warren King is an American artist based in Stockholm, Sweden who creates these stunning life-sized figures from only cardboard and glue. This ongoing project is a recreation of his grandparents’ home village in China one individual at a time. The discarded materials that he uses relate to the nature of the connections he is attempting to reconstruct. The forms are abstracted, and the backs of the figures are left unfinished, revealing hollowness and the artist’s meticulous construction. His work is not so much about the individuals that are represented as it is about his own attempts to understand them, and also the limitations of these efforts.
