Noriko Ambe: she readily describes this as her ‘life’s work’, cutting individual sheets by hand. Yikes!
Matt Shlian: kinetic foldings
Cai Guo Qiang: anyone got some spare fireworks?
Felix Gonzales-Torres: not strictly an exploration of materiality, but his stacks are pretty devastating.
FYI: Did you know the above work, Untitled (Aparición), was sold in 2011 for 1.65 million US? Would he be turning in his grave or laughing?
Although I think this work is incredible, for my own process and sanity, I resolve not to:
- obsessively meticulously cut
- obsessively meticulously fold
Me and meticulous are never mentioned in the same sentence, unless in combination with the word ‘not’.
