The Town was Paper part 1

Multimedia by KBovey

My artwork is based upon the novel Paper Towns by fishingboatproceeds (John Green) and represents the fragility of the written word and the fandoms built around them. A fandom is a kingdom or domain of fans that come together to discuss and empathise with the characters in a novel or film.

Viewers are invited to interact with the sculpture by moving the buildings and houses and also use the template provided to construct their own paper building to add to the town, therefore participating in the expansion and evolution of fandoms as a whole.

 “The town was paper but the memories were not.” – John Green
