Our third issue is all about home, so we knew right away blinds.com would be a perfect partner. Every home has some sort of blind. A shade, a curtain—whatever it may be to keep the world from seeing in, to keep the light out or to the aesthetic of the home. We were excited to take something so common and create an art piece with it. The design is abstract—slightly Mondrian inspired. Simple and very linear to stay inline with the structure of the blinds themselves. We partnered with filmmaker Richard Smith and Low Res Studio for the film.
Painting the blinds actually took quite a bit of trial and error. Although simple in presentation -the actual application was quite complicated. Each slat needed to be marked and painted individually due to the overlap. This installation was produced in collaboration with Blinds.com and features 2 3/4” Architectural Wood Blinds in Danville Silk White.
