Eva Black | Folded by Eva Black is a beautiful and touching piece of art created from folded found and treasured papers including old maps, artworks, paper bags and books, each carrying it’s own story. Eva is a freelance graphic designer based in Los Angles, California, she specializes in brand identities and print.
I began the piece by collecting paper, using all found paper - paper that was given to me, paper I had collected over time, paper from old artworks, paper bags, or paper I bought from old bookstores. The piece has about 3,500 triangles and is about 12 x 13’. It’s fascinating working with a medium in which a new tactile experience is explored. A medium that is often regarded as common, but has also created strong connections with its viewers. Each has a story to tell, from old maps to smaller paper remnants. These have been taken from their discarded state and folded three-dimensionally to further their transformation. A transformation that finds order in its details. A transformation into something beautiful.
