Papermate: Andreas Kocks

703G 1 522x400 Papermate: Andreas Kocks Beyond the basics of books or buildings, the ingenuity of man and the things he can accomplish with a dead tree blow my mind, especially after coming across the following. I mean, sure, man does many things with pulp and paper, but I’d wager that hardly any of them spend as much art-time or imagination intricately cutting and placing, creating depth and form to flat surface, and turning out what German-born artist Andreas Kocks describes as “paperworks” — installations, sculptures and wall ornaments that stand alone and leave their mark, all without a single stroke.

Pliant, plain, malleable—and clearly breaking from the realm of ‘flat,’ paper as a medium is often turned to by artists with a pen or brush in hand, which is why  the complex, sometimes-jarring dimensional installations from Kocks has raised the bar of what can be done with form.

& it’s also worth mentioning the marvelous transformation each installation takes from watercolour and ink blot experiment to walls of wonder. I just hope the frequency of paper cuts are low.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
