isabelle daëron has designed the ‘ishihara’ tapestries as an exploration into the ways in which reclaimed waste and scraps can have an alternative purpose. small, tight rolls of colorful paper are worked into circular and rectangular rug formations — a principle which offers a resistance to compression. an infinite number of motifs can be generated depending on the available scraps and color range, creating various graphic compositions, both figurative and abstract.

 

the project references ‘ishihara’, the visual test designed to determine color blindness by displaying images of discs composed of tiny dots. at close range, the intricate craftsmanship made by individually rolled paper pieces becomes apparent, but from a distance — or when placed on the ground — colorful, geometric compositions become clear.
