Clare Strand, Spaceland/Flatland

Photographic paper cut and folded into a sequence of three-dimensional platonic shapes

UK 2012


"Edwin Abbot’s novella Flatlands (1884) offered the vision of dimensions beyond the observable, where a square can become a cube. Coincidently in the same year George Eastman received his patent for photographic film, which led the way to the first hand held mainstream cameras and the mass conversion of the 3 dimensional into the 2-dimensional. With Flatland and Spaceland, traditional processed photographic paper is cut and folded to make a sequence of three-dimensional platonic shapes.The 2D templates are framed alongside." (
