Exhibition: Paper Sky

Exhibition: Paper Sky

Paper Sky is the first collaborative, modular installation from Bridge Projects, a new endeavor by Stuart Allen and Cade Bradshaw that hosts kite and art making workshops. More information here: www.bridgesatx.com

The installation was fabricated by a gathering of artists and non-artists. Given size and material constraints, participants created multiple modules to contribute to the final installation. Constructed with humble materials, bond paper, wire and staples (lots and lots of staples), the completed installation is surprisingly transformative. Assembled together, and building on the strength found in numbers, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
