Zim And Zou

Thibault Zimmerman (Zim) and Lucie Thomas (Zou) spent almost a year painstakingly building the eight-piece “Back to Basics” series, which includes a Polaroid camera, an old Leica camera, a Walkman (with cassette), and a Nintendo game controller. Its the use of a paper process to transform an industrial object into a handmade craft, the fact that the objects are not working places the user in a spectator position, a way to see the object out of its function.

The project is clearly inspired by ’80s nostalgia, but it’s also a reminder that even the most cutting-edge pieces of technology will soon become quaint relics.
