As regular readers should know, I love a good horror (book, film, play – not fussy – just scare me goddammit). So I was utterly charmed to discover these horrorgami pieces which celebrate, in paper form, some of the most iconic buildings used in horror movies.
Artist Marc Hagan-Guirey has lovingly recreated his favourite haunted houses using a technique known as kirigami (a type of origami which involves the folding and cutting of a single piece of paper).
|The Overlook Hotel by Marc Hagan-Guirey|
From The Overlook Hotel in The Shining to the house from Amityville, you can be sure that all the classics are there – but that’s one street I wouldn’t want to be living on!
You can see all of Marc’s horrorgami on display at Gallery One and a Half in London between 1 -14 November 2012.
Derren Brown update
I just discovered that this artist is behind the revamp of Derren’s new website and also the advertising for his stage show Svengali – find out more about his work http://www.pixeldandy.co.uk. It’s a small, small world. And all roads seem to lead Derren Brown’s way. I’m scared now….
