In 2016, Flavor Paper and David Nosanchuk came together to develop a collection. This collection was inspired by a voyage from Nosanchuk’s home base of New York City to the churches of Rome, taking elements from wood benches and stained glass windows to skylights and sculptures and re-imagining them in hand crafted, kaleidoscopic patterns that have a distinctly digital feel. Each pattern, a product of Nosanchuk’s own photographs, multiplied and playfully assembled, is truly two papers in one – from a distance the designs are abstract and textural, but as the viewer approaches, details like windows, columns and apses emerge allowing a glimpse into the subject’s former life.
This collection was featured in the Cranbrook Art Museum’s Time Machine Exhibition and in Pucci Showroom New York. These images provide a look inside both of these spaces.
