Mastering the secrets of folding, long before the invention of paper and anything that is flat, the immortal Origamaster has been traveling through time and space since the dawn of mankind. The very few who had the chance for a quick glance could swear that he’s surrounded by a cloud of rapidly moving hands..
Being a very private person, the Origamaster has decided to create a piece which will help him to be less recognized while being among the living – folding a thin sheet of transparent plastic has been the perfect solution for that!
BCXSY was commissioned by HEDMANKLING to create a sunglasses concept for the project SHADES DOWN IN TOKYO TOWN – an exhibition that features the creatures and their spectacular spectacles.
The exhibition will take place at CALM & PUNK gallery, Tokyo, and in 2011 will tour to tour to London, Gothenburg and Stockholm.
The participating artists are: Ann-Sofie Back, BCXSY, Bernhard Willhelm, BLESS, Charlie Le Mindu, Helle Mardahl,
Henrik Vibskov, Iris Schieferstein, Josefin Arnell, Kling by Kling, Maiko Takeda, ManfreDu Schu, Mykita, Piers
Atkinson, SWD/Skyward and Walter Van Beirendonck.
