Turning Newspaper into art?
Inspired by News and clothes hanging culture in Hong Kong, we created our own version of newspaper – Paper Quilt on Hanger. The world is surrounded by news. Everyday we read news on TV, facebook, and google. We can’t tell what to trust anymore with all the fabricated viral content. We see this social phenomenon as a fabric that cover the truth and essentially the value of News.
Newspaper itself is also a medium we used a lot to create art and build structure for children class. We found it as an recyclable material that requires our imagination. It is weak and needs folding, rolling or interlocking to obtain strength. It can be turned into different art for children and a paper dress or paper wall.
