Papier Machine – Expedition into the invisible aesthetics and materiality of electronics

Created by Marion Pinaffo & Raphaël Pluviange, 'Papier Machine' is a booklet gathering a family of 13 paper-made electronic toys ready to be cut, coloured, folded, assembled or torn. Screen-printed with special inks that have different electric properties, these toys aim to reveal what hides behind our machines’ magic black boxes : a world of materials, shapes, colors, stories and even smell.

"We start this exploration by diving into a world that is both familiar and mysterious: the microcosmos enclosed within our everyday electronic devices. Looked at closely, printed circuit cards become cityscapes, and our phones’ components resemble little creatures. Papier Machine (Paper Machine) invites us to meet with these ghosts in the shell.
