PaperPlay and the Art of Folding

E is for Explosion

The decisions were soon made, Sara used the Silver Bullet machine to practice on 220 gms paper,The idea was to find materials that would compliment the engraved image that was printed on fine Japanese paper. Sara tried a range of colours before it was decided to settle on a black folder with a red under layer. The discussion had as to what text should appear and where it would be placed led to the decision to simply label it E for Explosion. This title referred to the image but also gave it an instructional feel.on one hand it was obvious but the mood of the work called for a statement rather than a poetic or ambiguous piece of text.

Seeing the card folder develop and the design emerge really brought the work together.
