“Emma Signe and Alice Young are both Graphic Design & Photography graduates from Kingston University in London. They collaborated on the project ‘The Edge’, which has a creative focus on the troublesome economic situation in the euro zone.
Their work, is an incredible blend of creativity and artistry, a beautiful combination of vision and talent. But perhaps the most interesting is their choice of subject, which interferes with some sort of narrative on a social issue.
As the Euro is on the edge of a collapse, the two decided to demonstrate its effect by using 100 sheets of white layered AO paper and then, cuting out each country in the Eurozone. Thus they created a map of the countries within the euro zone in order to represent the edge of collapse – visualising the current status quo. The isolation of this economy is ultimately the curse of its existence as expressed through each layer and finally to the last, where none of the edges of the countries are cut out. An almost transparent euro symbol in the top left hand corner is screen printed and serves to express the idea of weakness of the currency.”

Artist Evan Wondolowski uses thousands of paper strips from shredded U.S. Federal Reserve Notes to create these amazingly detailed portraits of celebrities and politicians. Evan says that he starts with an underdrawing of the portrait on newsprint and then glues each shred of currency piece by piece before finishing up with a little vine charcoal to increase contrast. Each portrait can take up to a month or more.

“Our physical bodies are beautiful structures full of detail, and they hold the stories that haunt and mold our lives. The lines on a road map are beautifully similar to the lines that cover the surface of the human body. In my work involving maps, as I remove the landmasses from the silhouetted individuals I am further removing the figure’s identity, and what remains is a delicate skin-like structure. Through this process, specific individuals become ambiguous and hauntingly ghost-like, similar to the memories they represent.”
