"un-printed material" exhibition in G8 Gallery
Creation Gallery G8 recently showcased the “un-printed material” exhibition by nendo. The exhibition displayed paper in many different ways which showed the idea of “printed material” by “un-printed material.” The designers wanted to work with paper but approach it from a different angle. They used their hands and a 3D printer to create outlines of paper as an expression of that paper without using paper itself. Some of the outlines show rounding, others showing the paper having once been folded and others appear to have feathery layers with fibres due to the torn section of the paper. The designers’ idea was to capture the unique essence of paper that everyone has experienced at one point.
The gallery itself contains 3 rooms. The first room has 30 sheets of A1-sized posters. The second room has multiple series of large postcard-sized paper which show 5 stages of the process that the paper was modified. In the final room, outlines are used to represent 3D objects that are made of paper. This includes paper bags, milk cartons, paper cups and origami figures. This room also plays an animated film which hints what the outlines represent in order to stimulate the imagination of each visitor. The title of the exhibition – un-printed material – is a play on the term “printed material” that alludes to the concept of the designs.
And... That's it!
