“Paper nest”: The phrase is open to interpretation. The nesting instinct in post-modern society can best be defined in terms of paper. Bills of sale, photographs, books, invoices, magazines, folders, calendars, check stubs: We all live in, and constantly build, paper nest. Paper, since ancient times, has been considered amedium of transference of energy, spirit, labor and devotion Now, paper has also become a symbol of the constrictions that people place upon themselves. We are bound by paper. Paper, transformed through art, can free us.
