Into the Vortex

I was so into this work by Julia Goodman at the CCA MFA exhibition.


Each ring is made out of recycled paper – Goodman collects junk mail, old paper scraps, etc. to make her sculptural objects. Isn’t it amazing that the hand-made paper looks like granite?  Below is the front view, looking into the vortex.

I’ve known Julia since she participated in the Distributed Exhibition in San Jose last year, a project organized by Sara Thacher and part of the This Show Needs You. For that project she was busy collecting junk mail – it’s great to see what she has been making with it.
