Can a font change the future? On her first day back at the University, a rogue Professor sets out to avenge her missing husband - and the lost art of ink on paper - by conducting a dangerous lesson on typography. When the Professor's lecture jumps the rails, we peer into a near future where desperate people search for the tangible in an ever more virtual age.

Also, (this is my last one I swear!) these paper trees are really interesting. The artist - Teruya - cuts one side of a paper object and pushes the negative paper inside, creating a miniature paper tree. This creates shadows all around the interior of the object, giving the idea that there are numerous paper trees inside one bag/ box/ toilet roll. Its quite a poetic idea "The bags started as trees and they are ending their lives as a tiny echo of what once was".
Wendy Plomp has done some really nice work with paper and installations. Her message in a box pieces are really nice. She prints the inside of boxes with different designs reminiscent of persian carpets; creating objects which can then be used however you like. Its the idea of interacting with an object in whatever way you like, each person's approach is different to the next. Interesting, but maybe again off the thread of the project again...
Also look at this project Paper Cave by the same artist

We could even sell these as nets for a "make your own" kit. They would be cheap for us to make ourselves though, albeit time-consuming
Pop up trees
All work in this post is by the illustrator Lucy Roscoe (clickhere) They're tiny & very intricate, but imagine them large scale...
