my grandmother’s wallpaper

In an age of 3D printing, flat sheets of paper are so passé. So when Wesley de Boer had sections of stripped wallpaper from his grandma’s house, he gave them their second life in the third dimension. Aptly named My Grandmother’s Wallpaper, the project explores another use for the material as a myriad of flower-like creations. Small pieces of paper are criss-crossed to build the intricate objects. The gridded network of light paper leaves behind a matrix of darkened shadows, accentuating their internal depth with optical flair.
