"Everything that we see, can be seen in another way. Therefore, I ask myself; isn’t everything that we see an illusion anyway?"
- Sandro del Prete
 
Landscape made out of stationery
 
This project was done in March 2012 under the theme “Optical Illusion”. 
 
I was highly inspired by Carl Warner and his amazing landscape works done entirely out of food. It interested me how the optical view can be deceived so easily, thus make it a very appealing theme in the art and design world. 
 
Optical illusions not only take place in photography or illustrations, but in everyday life. Our view on things is dependent on habituality and experience. 
 
Since i was not too keen on using food as my main tool and since it should not be a complete copy of Mr Warner’s work, I thought of using something different, which was easier to work with, cheaper and also something which was more of an everyday tool. I was also interested in working with something which was personal and important to myself as an artist and design student so I came up with stationery, something which has been piling up around me since I was a little girl and which I never threw away, no matter how old it was (yeah, many broken and dry colored pens finally found a new purpose in this project ha!).
 
The tools I used were: plasticine, pencils, different colored crayons in all sizes, blue ink cartridges, white and colored chalk stones, erasers, paper clips, transparent colored paper, drawing pins. 
 
The final landscape measured 60 x 50 cm. Photograph taken with Canon camera, later edited in Adobe Photoshop.

“Paper Faces” was created with the intention of linking the use of CreatorVol role, a role for the publishing industry as natural, vivid and close, hence the relationship and metaphor that between paper and face. From this idea and the need to show the qualities of the paper in a four-color printing process is a series of distinctive structures made with paper covering the face of the different models.
