paper towel art

Thanks to the inspiration left by unlikelymoose on a previous post, I now have some paper towel artwork hanging in my kitchen. View the full photo.

Having a big hole cut in the middle of the paper towel renders it pratically useless, yet by retaining the familiar rectangular shape, it still evokes the essence of paper towel.

Another nice touch is how the texture in the paper towel is actually round imprints reflecting the round circle cut in the center. View closeup.

I like it, but I think the masking tape detracts from the piece as a whole. Maybe a nice simple frame … made from paper towel tubes

A great conversation piece no doubt! Here is another great conversation piece for your home or office; the story time toilet paper roll. After a roll of toilet paper is finished take the cardboard piece and write a story on it in a circle like fashion. Disturbing? Yes! Entertaining? Yes! Display it on your desk or coffee table. A Buddhist teacher of mine showed me this enlightening exercise in a creative writing class.

The entire used toilet paper roll is the disturbing part. You just have to hope people washed their hands before they wrote on it.

oh, a toilet paper roll. i see – the association with what one uses the actual toilet paper for. that’s what disturbing. i think it’s a great creative exercise, nonetheless. it would be difficult to see what you had previously written, so it would be more stream-of-consciousness. it would help get the creative juices flowing. for a longer story, use a paper towel roll.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
