Altered Atlas


How to turn something as mundane and boring like paperwork into an art piece?
Would you ever think it was possible? :)
Talented and creative France proves it is!



Like many peeps out there, I hate paperwork. Not only am I a big zero when it comes to figures, I also feel that time spending doing paperwork is stolen art time!
Maybe, just maybe, if I have a more fun environment to work in, things might be less annoying. So I gave this 1956 atlas a new life... as my file storage!


If you're a book restorer, you might not like how I treated this atlas... at all! ;)
But at least, I'm giving it a second life and most of all: lots of love!


And in case you wonder, yes, it worked - I'm much more inclined to keep my paperwork up to date now, as stroking and manipulating this new storage adds to the fun. :)))


And here's a video so you can see the whole creative process:
