It’s quite extraordinary what people think to do with post-its. From artful window coverings to giant patterned walls, the sticky squares seem to have endless oppourtunity. Perhaps it is because we spend our work days staring at the task-filled squares? I love ‘post-it structures’ by yo shimada of tato architects because of the uniquely creative folding. Oy, the dimension and texture created! On show at the gallery artzone in kyoto city, the installation of 30,000 post-its creates a architectural wall of florescent paper. Perhaps this idea could be re-created in a more durable paper as a purchasable screen or room divider? Next time you are bored at work, raid the supply closet and start building your own happy wall of neon. Send pictures please!
