Today I applied paper pulp to canvas in an effort to recreate the technique used by David Scanavino in his wall installation at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (see Day 6). Yikes! My paper pulp, which I made from leftover scraps of paper from my other mixed media pieces, looked like oatmeal (to put it politely) and applied to the canvas had the texture of a lumpy rug. I had to go back to the Aldrich Museum to get a closer look at Scanavino's work. It looked like play dough with a beautifully dimpled texture (see above). I'm hoping some magic will occur overnight as my paper pulp dries!
