Tanis Montgomery, Student Work

Challenge: Newspaper
Instead of using newspaper as a ground or as a collage medium, which I thought would be the fairly obvious choice, I decided instead to use it as a sculptural material.  I tore newspaper into small pieces, added water, and used a blender to create a pulp and then compressed the pulp into small three-dimensional shapes.  This exercise was mostly an experiment with the material.  I found that it was very difficult to create forms with flat sides or with any amount of detail, as well as thin or flat objects. -Tanis Montgomery, Fall 2013
