Volume and Void
This Interspatial installation for the 2017 PULP Paper Art Party is composed of a uniform “cubic” formation of recycled strips of paper, 8’ on all sides of the installation. Suspended from an overhead wire mesh by paperclips, the strips form a porous volume that can then be manipulated by the participants. The interactive components here are two projected archways, one in each horizontal axis of the volume (front to back, and right to left). Participants then use scissors, or even their own hands, to tear away the paper as the projection outlines, producing two negative-space tunnels, which then intersect in the middle. The result is a sort of cathedral-like space made purely of vertical strips of paper. Floodlights illuminating it from above aid the visual impact of the piece, creating a kind mysterious, soft sea effect.
