Combat Paper Project: Transforming Military Uniforms into Sheets of Handmade Paper
Guest Drew Cameron talks about his work with the Combat Paper Project. He is currently artist in residence at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland.
Drew Cameron is co-founder of Combat Paper Project
, a national program that works directly with communities affected by combat to transform military uniforms into sheets of handmade paper, which become works of art. During his residency, Cameron is accepting donated clothing to use in his papermaking process. The objects produced will be encoded with memory, becoming unique portraits of former owners.
