Photographer Eirik Johnson's Barrow Cabins

In the summer of 2010, photographer Eirik Johnson adventured to the most northern stretch of the United States to capture several hunting cabins in Barrow, Alaska. He returned in winter 2012 during the frigid Arctic Winter Solstice to photograph the same cabins at the precise angle and position, as he did that one summer. With only a brief four hour window of dusk-like light during this recent winter trip, he still managed to succeed in a complete visual contrast, especially when the images are viewed side by side. The structures are used by native Iñupiat families who travel from Barrow to hunt for waterfowl in the summer and seals in the winter. "The cabins are situated along the shores of the Chukchi Sea, part of the larger Arctic Ocean. Each structure has been fashioned out of whatever makeshift materials are on hand, from weathered plywood to old shipping pallets collected from the nearby-decommissioned Navy Base. Seen together, both the summer and winter series are a meditation on the passage of time and seasonal shift along the extreme horizon of the Arctic."

New from Pia Wüstenberg

We last highlighted Pia Wüstenberg's work in our May 2012 issue, when we called her one of design's rising stars; previously we called out her innovative recycled paper lights, which she created by shaping rolls of laminated scrap paper on a wood lathe. She recently got in touch to let us know about her latest project: a new iteration of her Stacking Vessels, which she originally designed in 2011.

Q&A with Paper Engineer Matt Shlian

Apophenia: the experience of seeing meaningful patterns or connections in random or meaningless data. Such is the title of Ann Arbor, Michigan based paper artist and engineer Matt Shlian's geometric series for Ghostly International, a follow-up to 2011’s Tessellation Series. Presented in four distinct moments, each with an edition of 25, Apophenia reads like snapshots in the process of pattern creation. We recently had the opporunity to chat with Schlian to find out more about his creative process, influences, preferences, and why he is "sort of anti-decoration."
