Kristen Meyer Makes Tangible Geometric Art

Connecticut-based prop stylist and designer, Kristen Meyer, describes her technique as “nature meets scissors.” Using a mixture of disposed items and organic materials, she creates geometric compositions that are aesthetically pleasing. A sort of contained chaos, so to speak.

Her tangible compositions are made by either following the natural shapes of the materials she collects or by carefully snipping some odds and ends, creating that seemingly perfect geometric shape. Amongst these materials, you can find anything from vegetables and crackers to broken mirrors and old keys.

“As far as how I find materials to experiment with, it varies a lot,” she told Colossal. “I generally work with what I can find around the house, inside or out. It begins as a scavenger hunt of sorts, and then a challenge as I begin to build.” These materials are placed on pastel backgrounds in tidy shapes.

The finished product is a thing of tangible beauty. Take a look for yourself:
