The Matter of Tides

The Matter of Tides is an immersive art installation of handmade paper, inspired by shoreline detritus and plant ecologies of the Narragansett Bay. Fiber from non-native seaweed, reeds, and weeds were used to make elongated, book-like paper sculptures that transformed the space.
