Material Design

In 2014, Google introduced its new design language Material Design. From the very first moment I was fascinated by that design concept:   

"[...] unlike real paper, our digital material can expand and reform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and shadows provide meaning about what you can touch. [...]" - Matías Duarte

Material Design is based on paper and ink, transferred into the graphical user interfaces of Google's web and Android applications.

I'm not a programmer or software designer. I thought why not to transfer this concept into photography? With this idea in mind, I have constructed some paperworks using paper with different surfaces, colors and material, combining them with different shapes in different alignments. At the end, taking a photograph of that paperworks would transfer the physical matter into visual shapes with all its flatness, shadows, shapes, roughness and smoothness. 

Here are the results of that little project. You can also download all images as 16:9-wallpapers (20 MB, zip file)
