Fun Link Friday: Newspaper Sculptures by Atsushi Adachi

The holidays are upon us, so it’s a quick Fun Link Friday this week! This article by Spoon & Tamago caught my eye a couple weeks ago– a report about an upcoming exhibit by artist Atsushi Adachi, who plays with the theme of “collective memory” by creating miniature replicas of historical objects using newspaper articles and paper media from the same historical moment. The results are really cool!

Back in 2017 we had a Fun Link Friday on the artist Chie Hitotsuyama, who was also working with newspaper as her central medium, but to create life-like animal sculptures instead of still objects. It’s great to see the diverse ways newspaper can be transformed and reconstructed for different artists’ visions. To see more of Atsushi Adachi’s work you can visit his website, a to return to Chie Hitotsuyama’s work you can visit hers. Happy clicking!
