Paper Cave

When Fraser graduated with his degree in fine art a few years ago, the university held a big art show exhibiting all the works the grad class had worked on all year. Besides Fraser's masterful giant oil paintings - the majority of the installations involved gluing garbage to the walls. Okay, so perhaps it wasn't quite that blunt, it was "artistic" garbage glued into shapes on the walls - but you get the point. The world of academic art certainly goes right over my head and I prefer to stick to aesthetically pleasing art pieces in my life.

Well, the other day I came across a lovely art installation over on the Fossil blog and it reminded me of the coloured garbage pieces at the grad exhibition (in a good way). Turns out the designer Wendy Plomp made a whole slew of colourful paper cone stalagmites and stalactites to create one heck of a pink, white, yellow, and blue paper cave:

Isn't it breath taking? I love the how crisp and cave like it is and the colours they used are just perfect! Take a closer peek:

Oh those are so cool! Now I just need to come up with a reason to have a pink paper cave. I'm clearly not going to be a part of fashion week in Milan (the original purpose for the installation), but I'm sure I can come up with something. Perhaps a cave party? Maybe a bat cave party for little kids with a cheesy batman theme? Sounds like fun to me! What do you think? Anyone up for making a few paper stalactites with me (since I obviously need more things hanging from my ceiling)?


  1. That looks like a ton of work. It is interesting though.

  2. Very interesting. Probably too pointy for a kid's party though. Someone would definitely get hurt.

  3. I they look really cool! I wouldn't mind a few stalactites in my house ~_^
