Album Description
Paper collage on paper. Collected with the patience of a forensic scientist, paper stripes emerge from my discarded and shredded documents, notes and paper artworks. I redistribute fragments of wasted content on a rigorous grid to make the grid melt into a continuous and natural stream. It's a laborious process, of many levels of paper selection, of shredding and re-cutting, and of looping the paper strips individually before constructing a collage. The “Shredded Series" are not mere statements about recycling. I grounded this body of work in the principle that the resilience of human mind seems to always patch, to rebuild, to dig out meaning and shapes out of chaos. The intense meticulousness of the process coerces the eye to search for meaning and worth.
