The Book of Paper
From milk cartons to tissues and take away coffee cups, paper plays
an integral role in our day to day lives and yet we often take it for granted.
Through a series of sculptures The Book of Paper elevates the aesthetic
value of this most ubiquitous of materials. The Book of Paper features
essays written by artists, architects and scientists, all of whom have unique
approaches to paper – from adopting origami to fold NASA telescopes,
to creating earthquake-resistant cardboard architecture or using paper
as a therapeutic tool.
