Artist Erin Cramer strikes a pose in front of “Bertha”, the beater which she is using to making pulp out of natural fibers for her paper casting process. As you can see, it’s a noisy process, so Erin has to wear protective gear to safeguard her hearing.
Just wait until you see Erin’s unique contribution to our art car. Paper casting allows her to create life-size, realistic sculptures and objects at a fraction of the weight.
Lesson to anyone interested in installing on a CTA car? the lighter, the better! Paper is the perfect medium for this kind of installation.
