the a4 paper festival

Yesterday, I went to the THE.A4.PAPER.FESTIVAL and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. All the works that were showcased in the exhibition were incredible. I found myself perusing through the exhibition, basically admiring the works, thinking that they were some of the ‘coolest’ things I have seen in a while. I have recently found that I have a great appreciation for anyone who can make a model out of paper, and actually make it look good… Kait Burrows, you are one of these people. The intricacy of the folds in each piece of paper added to the entirety of her work- swan or no swan. The nature of these folds that were showcased in the sculpture were almost obsessive, but ultimately each piece enhanced the structural nature of the work. The work ultimately was sectioned into two parts- one piece sitting on a stool and the other suspended from the ceiling. These distances and layouts of these two structures and elements added a depth and structural nature to the work, ultimately enhancing its overall spatiality and materiality.

You’re incredibly talented. Solid work.
