Friday Night Flicks: Edith Kollath —breathing paper

This week’s flick is a video of an artist’s book. Usually this kind of presentation involves a demonstrator handling a book in front of the camera. This book, however, moves itself!



To see a little more of Kollath’s work, and find out how the books ‘breathe’, here’s a second video.



Perhaps you will find a little time this weekend to play with paper?

  1. Interesting, thanks for sharing. I am intruiged by the use of the structure of books on its own, the movement and texture of the paper. Unfortunately she doesn’t say anything about making them, or gives any details of the paper. It would be interesting to learn some more about her process. Seeing her soldering the chip was great.
