Calendar 2018

Positivo e negativo

I started to explore the theme looking at basic forms of papers that surround me like linear notebook or double punch paper. I started a journey, a hole/punch in the paper that turns into a balloon that wants to escape and fly away, the notebook line that turns into a torn wire that allows the balloon to escape. I continued to explore paper in different situations, confronting it with his worse enemy, fire. I created a harmonic/impossible situation, as the folded paper forms that contains the flame. Confronting paper with another enemy, a Paper shredder machine - designed for paper distraction - in this case, the distraction turns to a positive thing, by shredding a “paper road” that duplicates itself and offers alternative directions. I don't want to tell too many spoilers because I like to leave it open for the viewer interpretation.
