Student Spotlight: Paper Explorations
Fresh work from Sylvain Allard's packaging students:
"To begin our session and create a complete immersion in the world of packaging, I invited the students to do this exercise during the first course this year. The two-dimensional sheet of paper takes shape and becomes a volume. Therefore, shadows and light act on the white surface and create an image.
From a single sheet of paper, they should design a label for a bottle of wine. Through manipulation, bending, cutouts, and mechanisms or in repeated patterns and structures, they should create an image consisting solely of paper. All work should explore the potential of the paper and printing was not allowed.
Since it was meant to be an exploration to push the limits of paper. Transportation constraints, marketing and handling were not an endpoint. In contrast, research, innovation, virtuosity, originality and skill were the criteria for evaluation."
