For months I’ve been working on collecting and cutting a set of patterns, one from each decade since 1890 as a part of a 13 piece series. I’m almost done with the patterns and then I move on to the hard part; the portraits that go with them.

This one is composed of a large number of stacked layers. The dimensions were 18”x24” and with that amount of paper it was surprisingly heavy and felt very robust once assembled.

This 3D poem-book created by pop-up technique was inspired by the twentieth-century Hungarian poet Miklós Radnóti’s lyrical cycle titled Calendar. The spatial compositions in the twelve spreads are linked to the main theme – the changes in nature with the seasons of the year. The whole cycle is about the changes and movements take place in nature. The small paper creations reflect the atmosphere and cyclical nature of the seasons in a clear but lyric and sensitive way – as the poems it selves do. Except in case of the typography I consciously used no colours but accidental lights, shadows and contrasts in order to create a smooth harmony of colours.
