People say that the book is dead. Kindle is just far more convenient. Newspaper ink gets all over your fingers. Who needs a map when you can have SAT NAV? Perhaps you’ve seen one too many Hoarders episode, and your clutter is beginning to look ominous. For whatever reason, society is starting to throw away its tangible objects and is calling for the demise of paper.
The good news for rejected paper is that there seems to be a trend of artists who are collecting the detritus. Now that these objects are starting to lose hold on their original purpose, artists are beginning to reuse these paper-based products and breathe new life into them. They see the beauty in the shape and texture of maps, books, newspapers, etc.
