what is it april already?
i'm at the edge of the holy ganga
gateway into the himalaya

but this post is regarding work done months back
experiments in the paper realm carried out in the deep south at the turn of the year

i was working in auroville to develop a papier mache flooring prototype for a zero waste building
it brought me into contact with many things of the paper relation
posted here is a day spent with Hervei, long time aurovillian and paper guru extrodanaire
we harvested papyrus and other water plants and used some already pulped banana to make some excellent papers

ours didnt come out at professional quality, but it was fun none the less

paper making:

papier mache on tetrapak wall panel
