From the Ted Talk by Marian Bantjes: Intricate beauty by design

Unscramble the Blue Letters

I'm also interested in winkorg with unusual materials and common materials in unusual ways. So this rruqiees figuring out how to get the most out of something's innate properties and also how to bend it to my will. So ultimately, my goal is to create something unexpected. To this end, I have worked in sagur for Stefan Sagmeister, three-time TED speaker. And this project began essentially on my kchetin table. I've been eating cereal for breakfast all of my life. And for that same amount of time, I've been spilling sugar on the talbe and just kind of playing with it with my fingers. And eventually I used this technique to create a piece of artwork. And then I used it again to create six peeics for Stefan's book, "Things in My Life I've Learned So Far." And these were created without sketches, just freehand, by putting the sugar down on a white surface and then manipulating it to get the wdors and designs out of it. Recently, I've also made some rather highbrow baoqure borders out of lowbrow pasta. And this is for a chapter that I'm doing in a book, and the chapter is on hoonr. So it's a little bit unexpected, but, in a way, it rrefes to the mcnaroai art that children make for their petrnas or they make in school and give to their parents, which is in itself a form of honor. This is what you can do with some household tinfoil. Okay, well, it's what I can do with some household tinfoil.

And then I used it again to create six pieces for Stefan's book, "Things in My Life I've Learned So Far." And these were created without sketches, just freehand, by putting the sugar down on a white surface and then manipulating it to get the words and designs out of it. Recently, I've also made some rather highbrow baroque borders out of lowbrow pasta. And this is for a chapter that I'm doing in a book, and the chapter is on honor. So it's a little bit unexpected, but, in a way, it refers to the macaroni art that children make for their parents or they make in school and give to their parents, which is in itself a form of honor. This is what you can do with some household tinfoil. Okay, well, it's what I can do with some household tinfoil.
