The double sided paper hanging is made of recycled and handmade paper with string in between layers to form a net connection of panes.

Recycled Paper Panels Back View

Waste paper like old envelopes are blended and laid into sheets that consist of paper pulp, pasted with trapped leaves, or collaged scraps collected off cuts from past projects.

In one of the panels, the forms of sea shells are embedded reflecting the connections to nature and marks left behind, reminders of an increasing fragile environment.

Yet together they have been reformed into an artwork as a way of looking through the detritus that keeps piling up and can also reimagined as a barrier to protecting the environment and thinking of ways to preserve, recover and reconnect to a more natural state.
