From Scratch

I read a book once about making a toaster entirely from scratch called, "The Toaster Project". I was already on a journey to find a more sustainable lifestyle so the book came to me at the time because I had interest, but never-the-less it made me think about things deeper. We rely so much on someone else sourcing, harvesting, building and fixing our things (and food!) that we don't consider this luxury and it's not even a thought that we could try to do it ourselves. As an artist, I have decided to do just this. The first step has been playing. I have been making paper out of recycled paper scraps for several weeks now. And although I am only at the beginning of this self sufficient journey I'm already in love.
