Prompt: The assignment was to take a meaningful item that we had remade and construct it in a different material.
For my meaningful object, I chose to remake a knit sweater out of newspaper. Given the circumstances and materials available, I wanted to create a complete opposite of the materiality and feel of yarn. The piece was to challenge the way I used my object, what would happen if it became stiff. I created a mold using myself and duct tape, which I then covered in newspaper. I used newspaper that I bought at a gas station in Houston. The piece shows the different articles written about the coronavirus,and its interesting to read various snippets of information about things that were happening in the world.
