    Skyscraper on the Head Baroque and Rococo wigs used to be adorned with symbols of luxury, sophistication and the romantic spirit of the time. They were frequently bedecked with model frigates and intricate still lives composed of exotic fruits, flowers and even stuffed birds. This historic trend inspired us to link our paper Baroque wigs with the similar symbols of our time. Wishing to be consistent with the initial style of our paper sculptures, we decided to continue the existing series and so chose the items that would match the style of our earlier paper wigs. We knew at once that we wanted to take up the airplane and the skyscraper as the symbols of our time that are both bright and beautiful. Our new series is a combination of old and new luxury, where the skyscraper rises at the top of an ornate hairstyle, and the plane is decorated with flowers and ostrich feathers. We then took our project even further and went on to create a series of miniature paper wigs in glass flasks, measuring about 30 cm. They feature the Ferris wheel, the violin, and the Japanese style wig with a sprig of cherry blossoms as a symbol of the multicultural character of modern life. Not all our symbols can be viewed as cutting edge, but we preferred the objects that would fit the style of our series and make it literally and figuratively richer. Read Less

Небоскреб на голове
Парики барокко и рококо, часто  украшались символами роскоши, изысканности и романтических настроений общества. Это могли быть  модели фрегатов, сложные натюрморты из экзотических фруктов, цветов и даже чучел птиц. Нам захотелось развить наш проект с бумажными барочными париками и увязать его с аналогичными символами нашей современности. Вместе с тем, мы не хотели отступать от начального вида бумажных скульптур, а напротив, дополнить существующую серию. Поэтому мы решили выбрать предметы, которые обязательно впишутся в стилистику созданных нами ранее бумажных париков. Мы сразу решили, что такими символами, яркими и красивыми станут самолет и небоскреб. Это серия - совмещение старых и новых форм роскоши, где небоскрёб становиться  вершиной витиеватый причёски, а самолет может быть украшен цветами и страусиными перьями. Кроме того, мы развили проект дальше и создали серию миниатюрных бумажных париков в стеклянных колбах, размером около 30 см. Уже в этих мини париках появились: чертово колесо, скрипка, и “японский парик” с веточкой сакуры, как символ мультикультурности современной жизни. Конечно некоторые привнесенные предметы не ультрасовременные, но нас интересовали те, которые органично развивают нашу серию и делают ее образы в прямом и переносном смысле богаче.
