  • Paper Thin

    Gideon SCHWARTZMAN, "Paper Thin." Model.
    Flexible

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
    Gideon SCHWARTZMAN: Paper Thin is exploring an illustrated tension between flatness and 3d form; surface and depth.

    Throughout the past half century, two representational thoughts lend themselves in defining this project. The Robert Venturi creation of an image, and the Peter Eisenman axonometric diagram.
    While the elevations of Venturi operate as a set of images with conflated symbolism on a flattened plane, Peter Eisenman represents through an indexical process. His axonometric diagrams author a specific vantage into the formal evolution of any given project and his references are seen throughout the building.
    Paper Thin positions the unfolded drawing as a mixture of the two. An indexical flatness. It portrays a specificity in the process of folding while operating as a flattened image. This flattened image is compositional and is the source of production in transforming imagery into shape. I would like to thank Adam Fure and Ellie Abrons for their incredible support in the production of this project.

    sP: What or who influenced this project?
    GS: I am very much influenced by the pop art movement and its explored sensibilities. From the Claes Oldenburg manipulation of scale to the Memphis Group attempt at collage and the Richard Artschwager creation of depth in flatness.

    sP: What were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?
    GS: One reading that I continually look back towards is the 1993 edition of Folding in Architecture edited by Greg Lynn.

    sP: Whose work is currently on your radar?:
    GS: T+E+A+M, David Eskenazi, and T8Projects continue to be a great influence on my work.
