4 SMART PHONE SIZED KIRIGAMI MODELS FOR A SAMSUNG GALAXY VIDEO
I was incredibly excited when The Viral Factory (@ViralFactory) got in touch and asked me to create 4 bespoke pieces of kirigami for Christmas themed Samsung Galaxy viral. The only ‘tiny’ catch was that the works had to fit inside the smart phone and its cover. You might think those screens are big but when you’re cutting paper to that size it’s a different story. The pieces I created are; Travelling Home for Christmas, The Parade, The Theatre and The Rockefeller Ice Rink.
Within a sumptuious Christmas setting, a toy train carries on its carriages several smart phones with covers each containing a themed kirigami model. As the train makes its way around the track the phone covers open to reveal the kirigami models ‘popping-up’ against a colourful animated visual plays on the phone screen.
THE VIDEO HAS HAD OVER 1,700,000 VIEWS ON YOUTUBE
“It was a simple delight to work with Marc on our project for Samsung Smartphones.
He has that very rare combination of enormous talent and wonderfully energetic diligence. A genuine artist, but with professionalism and a willingness to collaborate. All that while being a properly lovely bloke.”
