Uribe is one of many artists today taking what we throw away and making it into art. I love the re-working of an ordinary or mundane object or material into something beautiful. Here he makes undulating, feminine curves out of corrugated cardboard.
I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau
The men of www.graypants.com/ are taking it to another level and making fully functional works of art of both cardboard and scraps of plywood. I serendipitously met these guys in Seattle and was utterly inspired. Their architectural backgrounds give them a unique grasp on structure and space and paired with their never-ending creativity the possibilities here are endless.
I was most impressed when they showed me their prototype for the Slice Chair below. The innovation here is incredible and the chair itself is an ingenious sculpture.
Live in it...
