This project started as a joke to myself but quickly turned into my artistic identity. I am a very emotional creative and tend to cry often as a healthy release when things get a bit too heavy. I go to places to cry and some places to stop crying. When I took a workshop in paper making, I knew I needed to make Fun Times Crying Paper for real. So, I have gone about putting leaves and petals and moss bits in the pulp soup. I’ve embedded pieces of the landscapes I find comfort in within my own peachy banana fiber tissue. I can cry into my comfort places and feel connection. Connection to places, connection to people and connections to earth. This paper explores the journey of the author in learning how to use humor, intuition, grief and more to share information and create meaningful bridges between people and the planet.
