The Art on Paper Fair was held earlier this month on Pier 36 in Manhattan. There were a few large scale site-specific installations. LAMINAproject presented Shanthi Chandrasekar’s Entropy: Macrostates & Microstates. The work features 36 systems of paper circles with holes punched in them. The randomness of the hand punched holes in each circle is reduced as the circles get smaller.
The circles have been suspended from the ceiling with clear wires that allow them to move.
The overlapping patterns create complex patterns exploring both entropy as well the concept of positive and negative space. It was wonderful to see such a fantastic use of all white paper to create what felt like a living 3-dimensional environment.
