Eco-Sublime | 2017

Eco-Sublime is the theme for the Biennial International Paper Fibre Art Exhibition 2017/2018 at the National Taiwan Craft and Research Development Institute in Taiwan.

Paper and fibre artists from around the world took part in the environmentally friendly eco sustainable event using natural or recycled materials. 

I was invited to make a presentation and paper making workshop about my suite of soundscapes.

Soundscapes : Water, Birdsong, Paper

Soundscapes : Water, Birdsong, Paper

A suite of three collages of screenprint and indigo dyed banana papers, stitched. 45 x 66cm (each).

This collage features a sonic image created from the sound of water dripping from the paper mould as fibres form to make paper.

A surprise addition to my soundscape collages was diamond shaped trills of birdsong captured when recording the paper making process.
