Factory made

For the Factory Made series, I hand-cut paper stock from the French Paper Company to create vibrant, abstracted scenes of the very factory where the paper is produced. The series provides a glimpse into the operations of the 140-year-old American paper mill by showcasing the production process and machinery—from pulp to the final paper product—in intricately layered collage format. The subject matter is of particular resonance to me, having grown up within a mile of the factory in Niles, Michigan.


In 2015, the Krasl Art Center of St. Joseph, MI commissioned a time-based media piece to accompany the cut-paper works for my solo exhibition of Factory Made (Jan 29- April 24, 2016).  sound collage by the artist. The video is an animated reinterpretation of the cut-paper pieces from my Factory Made series w/ accompanying sound collage--creating a virtual, voyeuristic tour of the factory and the processes from which the paper is made. Animation support provided by Jason Hogg.
