 Artisans

CRIZU gives old books a second chance: all pages are folded by hand, one by one, with art and patience until and old volume is transformed into a new and marvelous paper sculpture. Old manuals and encyclopedias are reborn into sophisticated pieces of design. The shape changes, but the book remains intact: it can still be read and scrolled through or, more simply one can admire it’s metamorphosis in an object of art and design. Old, but new. Poetic in it’s simplicity. The folded is done by hand, one page at a time. All done slowly and without interruption, repeating each gesture thousands of times, watching the paper transform under the fingers: touch is more important than sight. It is an art that requires patience and dedication, a sort of meditation where the rhythm of the gestures synchronize with the rhythm of the soul until the metamorphosis is complete.
