Confetti System




Amazing work by artistic duo Confetti System. They use materials like tissue paper, cardboard and silk and make anything from piñatas and blindfolds to full blown installations and sets. They even created work for one of Karen O's (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) birthdays. 
As someone who spent a lot of her time in University hand making sets out of random pieces of material and collecting scraps to hopefully transform them in to something beautiful, I admire the way they've taken something as simple as cardboard and turned it into something covetable.  They say their 'creations, occupy the space between the ephemeral and the permanent, evoking a sense of nostalgia and lighthearted fun.'
