The Power of Paper

BY FRANK BÖLTER
@ VOL 28 ON JUL 06, 2016

“I started to fold the paper boat and somehow I travelled around the world.”

In The Power of Paper from PechaKucha Night Glasgow Vol. 28 Frank Bölter talks about his practice as an artist working with paper as a material to build boats and houses.

He began using his work to challenge expectations both inside and outside the academic art world while a student at the Münster Academy of Art from 1998 to 2003. Boelter’s projects are distinguished equally by their powerful poetic imagery and by the precision of their execution, often carried out under the difficult conditions of the public sphere and galvanising the public into action.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 25th, 2017.

Kartent

Nothing beat making your own little house out of a cardboard box when we were little. Jan Portheine is making them for you with ‘Kartent’, a tent made out of cardboard you can use on a music festival for instance and help the environment by doing so as well. Because did you know that one out of four people leaves his tent behind after a festival?!
