Working both by hand and with a 3D printer, they created outlines of paper as an expression of paper without actually using paper itself. Some of the outlines constitute curvature, while others show signs of the paper having once been folded. The art objects are currently exhibited at Tokyo’s Creation Gallery G8, which is dedicated to visual communication. The “un-printed material” exhibition takes place across three rooms in the gallery. In the first, 30 sheets of A1-sized posters with outlines are suspended in the intense white and concrete space. In the second room, multiple postcard-sized pieces constitute different stages of the paper being crumpled or folded. The final room shows a series of outlines, presenting smaller objects made of paper, such as paper bags, milk cartons, paper cups and origami figures.
