Paper Robots show and contest
Shin has taken part in art shows before (see the sampling of flyers above and below) and they've showcased a variety of his works--from figures to shoes and more. But an important part of his work is that anyone can download templates, print them out, and make their own versions of his pieces.
In that spirit, our show has a contest element that allows GR readers (and everyone else) to participate. At www.giantrobotshin.com, you can download the necessary files to make your own Paper Robot. To enter the contest, just upload the embellished template and a photo of the assembled piece.
The public will vote for their favorite pieces, and so will Shin and the GR staff. The grand prize winner will win airfare (within the U.S.), lodging (in Joe Escalante's favorite town, Culver City), some spending money (we are not responsible for inflation), and a place in the show alongside Shin and other paper artists from around the world... Download the templates here. You're just killing time browsing the Internet now anyway, so what do you have to lose?
