portfolio > Street Paper, Oahu. 2011-2013

Street Paper is an exploration of creating with free, widely available and often wasted local resources. All materials are scavenged in 96822. Fibers gathered from local plants are combined with forms of paper fiber which are difficult or impossible to recycle locally such as fiberboard packaging, junk mail and colored (flyer) papers, which are used to dye the pulp. Moulds are built from salvaged wood and fabric. Various combinations of pulps and fibers are then recast into handmade paper and forms.
