Planes, shadows, hues and reflections are subject of this research. For this study we have chosen for paper because this material has all appropriate qualities we were looking for. Paper is both flexible and stiff , it has colour, structure, it reflects and absorbs the light. Besides that it is one of the most natural materials for us to work with. By means of folding and cutting two-dimensional sheets are transformed in three-dimensional shapes, that form abstract images and shaded illusions.
Part of 'This is Basic' research is the photoseries. Here the focus is on the structure and spatiality of paper. By means of shadow, reflection, lines and color arises an abstract image. Through the exposure appears a color gradient and reflections which normally stays unnoticed. Paper doesn't feel like paper anymore. The photos were exhibited at the exhibition Lift Off, during the Dutch Design Week 2008.
