Tangram celebrates awe-inspiring expression across all creative disciplines. Each issue features an eclectic cast of artists, tinkerers, scientists, and eccentrics who embrace the many exciting intersections between beauty and surprise. Contributors to Volume 1 include Kensuke Koike (photo artist), Tobias Dostal (light sculptor), Kelli Anderson (paper guru), Robert Bosch (math professor), Oscar Ukonu (hyperrealist illustrator) and Polly Morgan (taxidermy sculptor).
The physical journal itself is designed to express a philosophy of play as art. Within the pages, a curious reader can find tactile, visual, and intellectual excitement. Tangram can spark a shift in perspective—things begin to glimmer that never did before. The world becomes a more astonishing place.
