Actually throughout the whole history of culture (with the exception of the Internet era) it was the paper which made it possible to make cultural exchange and to overcome not only spatial, but also political barriers. Today these functions are appropriated be the Internet.

In this project we want to pay tribute to one of the most important and essential art materials. This is a kind of attempt to reveal the soul of the paper, to show its hidden features, to touch the ancient magic of its production, to plunge into the warm space of a paper world. Perhaps just one sheet created by the artist may change the future of the paper.
