Trees, Time and Garment, Paper Art by Julie VonDerVellen
Julie VonDerVellen is an American paper artist whose research explore the book structure and storytelling presentation. With a very precise and original paper weaving technique (each piece is crafted from paper) she directly mixes her story with the foundation of the book structure. Pages, bindings, and chapters are folded within each piece to represent the continuous possibilities of how narratives and memories are told.
The garment series embodies personal narratives and stories written by friends and family members. The text is printed and interwoven into handmade paper crafted from recycled cotton clothing.
