DAVID ENGDAHL & ELLEN ENGDAHL EHLENBECK: PLAYING WITH PAPER

Enter a magical world of floating paper wads, far removed from the everyday hustle-bustle.  Simply experience art for art’s sake – joyful, beautiful, fun!  Each one of the hundreds of paper bundles has been created from recycled paper and carefully hand-decorated.  Together, these little wads twist in the air currents and form shadows that create a playful, ever-changing environment. The brother/sister team of David Engdahl and Ellen Engdahl Ehlenbeck will be collaborating on this stunning installation.
