Paper Trail 11
Inspired by the uses and history of paper. The work consists of an early cigarette rolling machine, used punched paper tape from Bletchley Park Colossus Computer, and a ten pound note. The form and function of the antique cigarette roller mirrors the form and function of the Foudrinier paper making machine used at Frogmore Paper Mill. Without paper the Colossus computer would not have functioned.
The sculpture was exhibited in 'Material Matters' in 2013 at Frogmore Paper Mill, the oldest mechanised Paper Mill in the world.
