Ebon Heath cuts out thousands of paper letters for several weeks and assembles them on fishing lines.

“I present letters as a living, corporal being.”- EBON HEATH

“grown in opposition to urban ‘noise’ created through advertising mediums in the modern day landscape, stereotype explodes the written word.”- EBON HEATH

My white Midsummer shade by Tord Boontje simply makes me smile. It’s made of Tyvek, a super-resistant paper. So nice!

I also want one in fuchsia, and one in vivid green.

Paper exhibition - Vancouver, Canada

August 11 to August 16
10:00 am to 5:00 pm


BC - Jeonju Hanji Culture Festival - 2009
Fibre, Naturally
Paper Like You Have Never Seen it Before

The Korean art of Hanji is a centuries-old tradition of making paper from the inner bark of a mulberry tree. Historically this paper has been used for everything from umbrellas, to lanterns, books to floor coverings. Today's artists are taking Hanji in new directions, weaving and felting with paper and creating many beautiful objects as well as art to wear.
The Vancouver Guild of Fibre Arts, the Greater Vancouver Weavers' and Spinners' Guild, FibreEssence and the Millenium Jeonju Hanji Forum, in partnership with Emily Carr University of Art + Design, the Craft Council of BC and the Canadian Society for Asian Arts are proud to present an exhibition and fashion show of works in paper.
Fibre, Naturally will be held in the Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr from August 11 to 16, 2009. This exciting exhibition will showcase the work of Korean as well as local fibre artists, using paper for hangings, boxes, books, knitted or woven pieces, and some extraordinary garments. These latter will be featured in a fashion show on the evening of Thursday, August 13, at the Emily Carr Theatre, South Building.

For tickets or more information contact the Craft Council of BC.

Just saw this article from Fast Company and thought of this thread.
"Everything but the Paper Cut: Eye-popping Ways Artists Use Paper"
"In the year since the Museum of Art and Design reopened [1] in its new digs on Columbus Circle, they've been delivering consistently compelling shows--from punk-rock lace to radical knitting experiments. The newest, "Slash: Paper Under the Knife" [2], opened last weekend and runs through April 4, 2010.

The focus is paper--and the way contemporary artists have used paper itself as a medium, whether by cutting, tearing, burning, or shredding. In all, the show features 50 artists and a dozen installations made just for the show, including Andreas Kocks's Paperwork #701G (in the Beginning), seen above. Here's a sampling of the other works on display:

Mia Pearlman's Eddy:

Ferry Staverman, A Space Odesey:

A detail of a sprawling work by Andrew Scott Ross, Rocks and Rocks and Caves and Dreams:

Lane Twitchell's Peaceable Kingdom (Evening Land):

Béatrice Coron, WaterCity:

Between the Lines, by Ariana Boussard-Reifel: A book with every single word cut out:

Famed Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson's Your House is a laser-cut negative impression of Eliasson's actual house; as you flip through the pages, you get a tour of the house in cross section:

Chris Kenny's Grand Island, part of a series of "maps" depicting a fictional city:
