Accidental Paper Scraps is an ongoing investigation into the nature of my paper bin. This series is part of my research project Workout. In this research I examine how artists and designers delimit their free terrain by imposing a series of limitations and rules on themselves. As such, the makers become their own instructors by limiting themselves in time, use of materials or ways of working. This method proclaims itself as self-education, whereby the repetitive nature of the method allows to investigate a particular subject. In order to test this on myself I set myself a task of making a weekly paper scrap collage using solely materials from my paper bin. In this process I use no tools, nor do I change the shape of the found paper scraps. I merely combine and juxtapose individual shapes, in a search to find meaning in between forms. The full collection can be seen here.
