Jazz Modern

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, $350.
