Combat paper project

Friend, neighbor and papermaker Drew Cameron does an amazing project called the Combat Paper Project.

Basically, here is what it is:

“Through papermaking workshops veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create cathartic works of art. The uniforms are cut up, beat and formed into sheets of paper. Veterans use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to embrace their experiences as a soldier in war.”

The levels of amazingness of this project are many.

And they have an exhibit coming up at the Firehouse Gallery beginning next week.  Well done, BCA!
