Found on Earth

Our earth blesses us with a host of natural materials which we use for the extension of human developement in various fields. Often we may find them in access and left unused in many places. Let us explore together the possibility of tranforming them into works of art.

Found Material - Wood, Paper & Book

Corner Art: Woodblock encyclopedia by fabian tan

an ancient encyclopedia by the SOCIETY OF GENTLEMEN in SCOTLAND

each beautiful page of illustration in the book is presented on two pieces of wood, hinged together to be made foldable, and tucked in corner's of a room

one can view the art at different angles or sides

clever play of a word befits each image

and each word is deconstructed to create words

Corner art was exhibited at ART for GRABS! Annexe Gallery, Kuala Lumpur 2007
