We have finally started working on new paper pulp tests in the Regenerating Field this week! The tests look a little funky, but will hopefully solve issues with cracking and warping. This was actually the first project I started at A-Z west back in 2000 – The goal was to work with the most “plentiful natural resource”, which turned out to be garbage – especially paper waste. The Paper Pulp Panels are dried in a grid of racks called the Regenerating Field. People think that they look like solar panels or modernist sculpture, they are also meant to function similar to an agricultural field where you set out a batch of pulped paper each day, and then harvest them several weeks later when they are dry.
