Art Where You Find It

Student projects are displayed throughout the halls 
and galleries of the Herron School of Art and Design. 
The swooping, dipping swags
 and shadows along one wall caught my eye. 
Draped paper was anchored by black dots 
and cylinders undulating like a broken necklace, 
beads held only by the links of string.
It must have been the result of of a "Design in
Materials" class, inspired by generations of graduation
pranks just about everywhere.
Other than for its intended purpose, I don't think
I've seen toilet paper put to better use.

You know what i'm going to say … The same reaction I have to all artworks: very pretty but how on earth do I keep it clean and free from dust?

Well, Dive, I suppose one would clean it the same way TP is generally used - just break off a piece and wipe away the offending dust motes.

Thanks, Gerald! I smiled when I saw it. Depending where the student shopped they invested only about $12-$20 in the project. He truly made use of commonly available materials.
