Posted in: - Oct 22, 2014 Comments Off

JAZZ MODERN is a flexagon, book structure that expresses the Art Deco movement of the 1920’s and 30’s. Art Deco grew out of the austerity of post World War 1 and the Decorative Society founded in France .
The movement drew inspiration from many fields including geometry, machinery, botany, nationalism and color. These ideas were translated into furniture, flatware, interior design, and architecture to create a powerful and beautiful aesthetic. This rotating flexagon also depicts women in fashionable attire. In a time of economic depression, Art Deco offered a symbol of hope and fantasy.
The term “Art Deco” originated in the 1960’s from earlier names such as “Jazz Style” and “Jazz Modern“.
Jazz Modern is 4.5” x 10.5” x 10.5”, printed on Epson Matte digital paper.
Edition of 25
