Folded Paperscapes by Francisca Prieto

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Folded Paperscapes by Francisca Prieto

Francisca Prieto's not afraid to reimagine an old book. The London-based artist works with damaged paper goods -- books, maps, music sheets, catalogs, encyclopedias -- to create her large-scale paperscapes. 


Prieto's writes that she takes a mathematical approach to her work; she folds each piece of paper, with careful attention to its words, images, and symbols, and creates a detailed grid viewed best from up close -- and a few steps away. 
The artist's latest series, "UNBOUND," utilizes a collection of German maps and is currently on view at jaggedart in London.
