Doug Beube’s Masked Information & Masked Language sculptures are made up of many paper pages! How can we alter pages to represent us? Today artists will create self portrait dolls using scraps of paper! What features are unique to us that you can represent using this medium? Paper is a versatile material. You can rip, fold, crumple, bend into shapes and many other creative ways to depict ourselves.
