Documenting hundreds of shredded envelopes






I made a little documentation of the project today. This is not the finished result, more of a test and quite bad non edited pics.
It was tricky to hang them i the trees, luckily I had my sweet little sisters + dad to help me. They were a lot more happy than they seem in the picture haha (tack igen kära ni:)

I have now 4 days left to finish them up + do all the rest for the installation before I will hang it in my school.
This project has been a real challenge to me because I consider myself more as a painter. But so far I'm happy with the result, let's see how it feels by the end of next week. Yikes..!

"They are floating connected and have opened up so that they spew their insides. They are dreams, torn up by the roots. The roots are growing into each other, over and over. Like streamers after a big party."

Did you notice that the snow is almost gone! :)
