We have been extremely busy this last week working on our collaborative LocalGlobal Thanksgiving event, so our sincerest apologies for the lack of blogging activity.
Having said that, we have found a beautiful piece of artwork that more than makes up for this neglect.
Jill Sylvia has created these wonderful lace-like books and installations by taking official printed works and cutting out the blank spaces in fine detail. We love how the pieces’ aesthetic delicacy juxtaposes with their business origins. A lovely image is created through the creation of negative spaces; the negative space of data, you might say. Where once meticulous and methodically organised information was or should be, we are left with nothing more than hollow spaces and empty spreadsheets. It’s strangely liberating.
