Not a stitch of handmade paper - all bent luan, epoxy resin, spray paint, piping, free spin roller bearings. It's one of 2 spinning sculptures we made for MakeShift Festival - food with a little art - in Madison's Tenney Park on Sunday August 12, 2018. This one is about 6' high. The one below is 8'.

The other had a some handmade paper (the pink shapes and the yellow and blue & green form), but mostly fiberglass fabric and tinted resin. We'd show a video, but there was barely a breath of wind. What breezes there were occasionally were defeated by the stiffness of the allegedly free spin roller bearings. We hope to set them up at a nearby farm so we have some video before the parts get lost to inventory.
Work by Barbara Landes and Paul Sullivan
We are husband and wife making art together in Madison, Wisconsin. The work grows out of our handmade papers and our studio experiments and tribulations with paper fibers. Other materials come in to complement and sometimes literally to support the paper such as insulation foam board, wood and heavy wire. MORE
