The Wish had its public unveiling last night in Thornton, CO. This is a permanent installation with a sound component. If you’re ever in the Denver area, I hope that you will be able to visit and experience the piece.
Holly Senn makes installations using book pages. She documents each installation with a lovely video. Here’s one:
And this link has nothing to do with paper, but the giant bird’s nest as public art by Hannes Wingate was just installed in Portland. And it relates to Holly’s work!

About The Sunday Paper: They keep saying that paper will become obsolete, yet artists, craftspeople, designers and creatives are keeping it alive and well. A healthy number of people are even making paper by hand (in some cultures they are still using age-old traditions). How cool is that? The Sunday PAPER is a resource for ideas and inspiration, all having to do with this amazing material. Each Sunday, starting with this edition, I’ll bring you stories and examples of people doing exciting, innovative, and beautiful things with paper, as well as links to interesting paperfacts I’ve unearthed from around the globe. I hope you’ll enjoy reading this paper, Papier, papel, хартия, Papir,紙, Papper, פּאַפּיר… and don’t hesitate to leave your comments and suggestions below!
