Brick

Handmade paper, 2017, 3.2"w x 12.3"h x 7.1"d (each)

In the past, bricks played an important role in traditional architecture. They represent a symbol of an old era. However, people nowadays waste tons of resources; recycling becomes a very important topic. I started using recycled paper as a new material and shape it into a new type of composing material—paper brick. This new material is not only light but also easy to carry and assemble. It could shorten construction time and save on human resources. Because of its special characteristics of flexibility and lightness, it would pose a challenge to some extreme structures.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
