Papery thoughts

My new friend Genevieve sent me some wild one-page paper cut outs by Peter Callesen.

They are magical aren’t they? So simple. It’s what isn’t shown that defines the object as the object itself. I was thinking that this is so true of many things. It’s the ultimate irony.

In accounting for example. It can be very creative. Things, like profits, that aren’t even there can appear. Debts, disappear.

In what people say, “Oh I don’t mean to be critical but...” Or worse, “I’m the kind of person who is very direct.” And then they aren’t.
