15 Bytes stopped in at the Lab @ the Leo in April to check out the newly decked-out Call Box and on the way discovered Brady Burrows, a local papermaker who turns junk mail into art. Burrows, who operates under the moniker ‘Lars’ Love Letters, ‘pulps scraps of paper and junk mail to make small batches of handmade paper that he then uses in collages or as the surface for his screenprints.
It’s too late to catch Burrows at The Leonardo, but we stopped in his studio to see what it takes to make his gorgeous, textured papers.
