Paperclips is a group of shimmering sculptural pieces that Kaplan composed using strings of metallic and coloured paperclips. The pieces were then photographed as 25 x 17.5 images.
Everyone knows that paper clips are used to hold sheets of paper together. That’s what I’ve been doing for a long time. Then one day, while I was at an office supply store, I spotted coloured paper clips. Intriguing! Surely these amazing clips contain the potential for something else… And that’s how I began my “Paper Clip Adventure”. – Nomi Kaplan
