Paper pulp will be used to record the shadows of a select number of campus trees, promoting an awareness of how the campus changes as the sun makes its daily passage, sustaining our plants, giving us warmth, and causing shadows to grow and disappear moment by moment. The network of paper shadow forms on the ground will tie tree roots to tree limbs, making the observer even more aware of the impact the trees have on the ecosystem around us.
The paper pulp used for the project will be made on campus by Associate Professor Jennifer D. Anderson, using the Hollander beater in the Wetherill Visual Arts Center. It will be made from recycled materials, paper, and fabric scraps from around our campus. The biodegradable paper will be mulched into the earth during the next mowing cycle.
