Paper Garden, 2009

This piece was commissioned by the AAF London Art Fair for the Recent UK Graduates 2009 Exhibition. 

This project was installed in the Slade Degree Show 2008 in the Slade School of Fine Arts in June, 2008. The piece, entirely created in paper and without any other structural material, was part of the author’s M. F. A. degree exam. 

The aim of Paper Bedroom was to create a quotidian, self-contained, recognizable, silent, and monochrome space that received the visitor. This created the opportunity of a perceptual experience where life’s interdependence became tangible.

Paper Bedroom creates an everyday, intimate space where every object is replicated in paper with great detail. The objects are inspired in the author’s past and present bedrooms, but they also resemble commonly found bedroom elements. Therefore every object, and the space itself, float silently in space and time alluding both to memories and archetypes.

Paper Bedroom, 2008

Slade Degree Show 08

University College London

Paper House was the first white paper installation. It was built for the project A Room Within a Room in the Slade Research Centre at Woburn Square, London. Paper was chosen as a main material due to its cost and accessibility, but also because of its whiteness and vulnerable looking qualities. 

 

Two features resulted essential for the author’s practice. First, the white and monochrome paper created special visual effects related to the Ganzfeld’s phenomena, as well as violet or blueish tones in contained space due to the amount of  paper used. Second, the visitors’ response was particularly interesting, as many liked to explore and interact with the piece or simply hang out in it. One particular person said, “This place is so quiet. I haven’t felt at such peace in a long time”. And considering the piece was built in hectic London, this comment was received by the author as an exceptional compliment. Thus this piece is a turning point within the author’s practice, a truly 

germinal work.

Esta fue la primera instalación de papel blanco que dio pie al proyecto Paper Environments. Fue construida para el proyecto Una habitación dentro de otra habitación en el Centro de Investigación Slade en Woburn Square, Londres. El papel fue escogido como material debido a su accesibilidad y bajo costo, pero también por su blancura y aparente vulnerabilidad. 

 

Dos hallazgos de esta pieza han resultado esenciales para la práctica artística de la autora. Primero, la monocromía blanca del papel crea un extraño efecto óptico relacionado al fenómeno de Ganzfeld, así como tonos violetas y azulados en el espacio contenido dado a la gran concentración del material. Segundo, la respuesta de los visitantes fue particularmente interesante ya que muchos exploraron gustosamente el espacio, interactuaron con él o simplemente les gustaba pasar tiempo allí. Un visitante en particular mencionó, “Este lugar es tan silencioso. No había sentido tanta paz en tanto tiempo”. Y considerando que esta pieza fue  construida en una ciudad tan frenética como Londres, este comentario fue especialmente significativo para la autora. Es por estos motivas que Casa de papel es considerado como un parte aguas en la práctica de la autora y una pieza germinal.
