Paper Beauty - Brief Introduction

'Paper Beauty' is an exploration of material manipulation and the link with society and the breakdown of structures. Initially, I began to use newspaper as the material that would later become the inspiration behind many ideas, which I intend of pursuing in my Final Major Project.

Newspaper to be represents many things - the recycling process and the whole community of this, the printed information, 'bad press' which causes problems and breakdowns in society, the disposability and disregard of newspaper as a material. Exploring a variety of techniques and processes within the experimentation stage slowly began to trigger links in my mind with how the material itself can represent how social, economical, cultural and individual structures are being broken down and lost through this misinformation, misguidance and miscommunication.
