Pavo
2010
Commissioned by:
de Krabbedans & CBK Rotterdam
In collaboration with:
Place:
Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Along with nine other artists and designers, we were invited to explore the possibilities and facilities of traditional/manual printing-techniques, available at Grafisch Atelier Daglicht. This invitation was part of the project Groot Grafiek (Big Graphics).
Pavo is a concept we have developed, for a space divider made of folded paper with adjustable-length wooden-feet.
The wooden-feet and both sides of the paper are printed using silk screen with a lined-pattern, originally hand-drawn with felt-markers.

The colors used are also originating from the iconic tones of those markers. The folding lines are being embossed using blind-print technique.
Once folded a unique visual effect appears on the screens’ surfaces through the wrapping and deformation of the lines.
