Summer 2015 — Paper in Three Dimensions

Volume 30 - Issue 1

We think of paper as having two dimensions, defined by its edges north to south, and east to west; a flat rectangular plane that broadly accepts graphic notations, drawings, and pictures on its surface. But if we think a little more deeply about paper as an object and not a plane, we quickly recognize that paper indeed has a material thickness. We know this to be true when we lift the deckle from the mould and see a measurable layer of fiber turn into a sheet of paper. This issue explores what happens when artists move with great intention into the third dimension.
