DE•MIL•I•TA•RISE

This pulp print is on Combat Paper, and the text DE•MIL•I•TA•RISE reflects the process of transforming a military uniform into Combat Paper. This process includes:

1.) Liberating the cotton rag by cutting the uniform into small pieces

2.) Pulping the rag in a Hollander Beater, which beats the cotton fibers into paper pulp

3.) Pulling the sheets of paper

4.) A tool for expression and creativity rises out of a symbol of repression. DE•MIL•I•TA•RISE

 

NOTE: This is hand made paper and printing. The color and paper varies from sheet to sheet, and print to print.
