Paper is, without a doubt, a material full of possibilities, delicate and robust, at the same time. To the wide range of uses that we are already familiar with, others have been added, which are always surprising and unexpected and that can use paper exclusively or can combine it with other materials, be it in a useful or simply artistic way. American artist Kirsten Hassenfeld, author of original sculptures with paper and light, fits in this last category
These aren't lamps, chandeliers, party ballons or any other kind of illumination artifact, as it may, at first glance, seen. Hassenfeld's pieces are sculptural combinations of several materials aside from paper, such as cardboard, tubes, plastic, etc. The end result is interesting, from an aesthetic point of view, graceful and elegant at a large scale. Some of this artist's work can be viewed at the Bellwether gallery, in New York.
