Water, paper, time Helen Hiebert’s explorations in paper : a video
Documentary that showcases the paper art of Helen Hiebert. “What is the relationship between art and nature? In Gretchen Hogue’s short documentary ‘WATER PAPER TIME’ the gradual and oftentimes imperceptible processes of natural change are given artistic form through a sensitive portrayal of the work of paper artist Helen Hiebert. Using time-lapse photography the film explores how external forces such as time, gravity and molecular structure bend, tear and wrinkle Hiebert’s handmade paper, producing startlingly allusive and organic forms which recall the fibers and plants that the artist uses in the papermaking process. A meditation upon the cyclical relationship between human and nature, ‘WATER PAPER TIME’ reveals the fascinating ways in which nature and art go on changing even (and perhaps especially) when we are not looking.” — from container

The activated page : handmade paper and the artist’s book
the jenny-press: “This publication explores the artmaking practice of individual artists for whom handmade paper is distinctive to their work and not-for-profit institutions that support hand papermaking. In the first section, self-selected participants answered a series of questions about their creative process and final products. The second section consists of two annotated bibliographies: one by the artists and artistic directors about their own work, and the other compiled by the editor of individual books that use handmade paper in a way that contributes to the content of the work. The cover of the publication features a die-cut and flaps that unfold to reveal paper samples by five of the eleven participants: Brian Borchardt, Dorothy Field, John Gerard, Caren Heft, Jeffrey Morin, John Risseeuw, Robbin Ami Silverberg, Joan Soppe, Claire Van Vliet, Dieu Donne Papermill (Paul Wong), and Women’s Studio Workshop (Tatana Kellner).” – from Vamp & Tramp web page on item.
