This is a story about death. Almost.

For sure, it begins with death, which gives birth to many things: Fear, ingenuity and life.

Once upon a time, paper was an important aspect of every part of our lives. It gave us privacy when it was a screen, it sheltered us from rain as an umbrella. It was an expression of artistry in the hands of skilled paper-makers.

Thanks to digital proliferation, paper’s numerous variants and breeds are dying out, leaving only the dull A4 copier paper, most commonly found in offices. In such dire straits, we’ve called on twelve individuals from all artistic disciplines to create an object using only paper - to create things of beauty, things of usefulness or anything else they can imagine, as long as it elevates the status of paper from a surface for printing, to a versatile medium of brilliant creativity.
