[Longish preamble: ARGH. Rolfe just brought to my attention that the last animated post had an inadvertent extra frame in it. The mistake is killing the perfectionist in me, but I'm not about to delete and repost it, so I'll take Elsa's advice and let it go. All 3 animations are now playing on our website - link in bio - if you want to see the "perfect" version, go check it out there. It's actually rather neat to see all animations side-by-side at once. Here're some pretty flowers to make everything better!]
FRESH CUT FLOWERS
3/8" quilling paper flowers + paper scissors.
30 x 24 in / 762 x 610 mm
Currently exhibited at the Design Museum Helsinki (@designmuseo_fi) for the #Fiskars #OurScissors exhibition, running until October 29th.
As part of Fiskars orange-handled scissors 50th-anniversary celebration, all participating artists get to donate 50 pairs of scissors to a charity of their choice. We chose to donate the scissors to COMPAS (@compas_mn), a non-profit arts organization based in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
"COMPAS uses the arts to unleash the creativity within all of us so we can create better lives and better communities."
"Creativity isn’t a matter of the haves and have-nots. It isn’t the privilege of the young or a luxury of the old. It is an essential piece of humanity. Through art, we aim to empower everyone to change their lives and change the world." - COMPAS
