Headline News

today.  Discarded newspaper tomorrow.

Newsprint doesn't make great pulp.  It becomes too mushy and the fibers don't bind.  However, it makes a wonderful base for collages as well as preserving stories from yesterday.

This image is part of my on-site art installation, Solitonusing newspapers.  Because the newspaper is 5 years-old, I thought it would yellow, but it hasn't.

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
