Inspiration + Paper = Solar Eclipse

You must know about the rare solar phenomenon all of North America will witness later today, well, unless you’ve been living under a rock lately. The special moment will see the sun, the moon, and the earth becoming perfectly aligned in a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle, casting darkness across the earth’s surface. A total solar eclipse will take place for the first time in 99 years, with up to 11 states experiencing a complete blackout.

And even though I’m on the opposite side of the globe when this spectacular event takes place, only experiencing it via a screen, I was inspired by the occasion and wanted to celebrate the uniquely dark moment the only way I know. With paper. Here’s a collection of my favorite black papers inspired by the current events.

The eclipse will begin over the Pacific Ocean at 15:46 GMT and you can watch it live here.
