The TOTems series are made from 100% post consumer recycled paper waste. They are in some ways a homage to Ettore Sottssas and his ability to freely shift between art and industrial design.
The TOTems can be static or interactive sculptures for the playfully minded.
The collaboration of Montreal-based design partnership, Dear Human (aka Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell), balances between art and design and is rooted in the duo’s common interests in world craft traditions, sustainable making, and unconventional material (re)use. Works created for Curatorial+Co. were influenced by handmade ways of recent past, ethnic textiles, tribal masks and the couple’s own product designs. The Standing Figure series uses a technique developed by Dear Human sculpting with a clay-paper mixture over armatures.
