Paperfolding by Simon Schubert

On May 1 the Berlin-based Upstairs Berlin gallery opened an exhibition of the filigree objects of the German artist Simon Schubert. With his elaborate paper reliefs Schubert displays spaces plastically and with the repetitive positive-negative folding the deepness of the image changes according to the viewing angle.
‘In Apnoesie’ can be seen until June 27, Upstairs Berlin, Zimmerstrasse 90/91 10117 Berlin

For hundreds of years artists and architects have been fascinated by cast shadows and perspective – the two shaping factors of spatial representation. Today the direct control of production machinery by means of digital design tools imparts an entirely new complexity to ‘optical reliefs’, which not only enable any image to be created as a cast shadow, but also make it possible to represent a multiplicity of images in one relief surface. Another new factor is the potential for industrial production, which opens up fully new possibilities for architecture in particular. Below we present three recent examples of shadow research.
