ALIEN DOORS / Sliding Kitchen Doors, 2011
A three-bedroom apartment was in need of additional sleeping quarters, so part of the dining room area was repurposed as a fourth bedroom. The window in this bedroom, however, is the main source of natural light for both the walk-through kitchen and hallway. New sliding doors were designed to provide the comfort of privacy for the bedroom, yet still illuminate these adjoining rooms.
Both doors feature intricate linear designs. The line-work on the bedroom door is clear and the negative space opaque. The second door (separating the kitchen and hallway) is inverted – the linear artwork is opaque and the negative space transparent, allowing the maximum amount of light to continue though into the hallway.
The Laser Summit of Cheap Graphics brings together creative people from various branches of the industry: design, illustration, visual communications, comics and architecture, with the goal to promote and establish young designers and design in general outside the market system.
These exhibitions have been organized by design collective Turbosutra / Turbo Tomorrow since 2009, with the idea to establish a new concept in communication between the artists and their audience – and enable widely accessible and cheap artwork for all! The art works are reproduced on A4 Fabriano office paper, and printed on-the-spot using standard LaserJet printers – for only 1 Euro!
During the previous four exhibitions, more than 300 works of art from both well-known designers and emerging talents were presented in Belgrade, Amsterdam, and Berlin. The fifth and final Laser Summit of Cheap Graphics was a two day event, starting with a grand opening on Monday, 10th of June 2013, and ending on the 11th of June with an even grander closing! Big thanks to Milica for the photos!
The Bear Calendar was made for this year’s ‘Bears – In Honor of Spring’ group show, which my friends Manja, Milica and Marko have been organizing since 2011. The idea behind the exhibition is to wake up the bears and celebrate the arrival of spring! Find out more on: www.medvedi.rs
The Bear Calendar consists of 4 banners that illustrate a bear’s life throughout the year.
Summer is for outdoor yoga, autumn is for umbrellas and long walks in the forest, winter is for literature and professional development – and spring is for waking up!
