A Tribute to Paper – Cool Stuff


4

Artist and industrial designer Lilian van Daal makes exquisite things from various materials. Her collection made cool stuff this time. Here, she pays tribute to paper by showing it in ‘delicate textures’ to remind us of how we give little value to paper when we use it, perhaps sometimes irrationally in our every day lives.

Lilian says: ‘Delicate Textures’  she hopes, would make us think about the everyday use of products and materials. In this collection paper is immortalized in an exclusive porcelain object. It is a tribute to paper and its origin. It makes us aware of the self-evident use of paper, since it appears and disappears again and again in our daily lives.

Here are some of Lillian’s other fascinating creations. A 3D printed soft seat.

A mother takes her son outside to blow bubbles in the snow and gets inspired to produce one of the most amazing photographic series of frozen bubbles. Found on DNA Art is our cool stuff – a collection of bubble photographs by Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly. The bubbles were created using a simple solution of dish soap, karo syrup, and water blown into a minus 9 degree temperature.

“We blew the bubbles across the top of our frozen patio table and also upon the hood of my car and then we watched in awe as each individual bubble froze with their own unique patterns”. Kelly said.
