Paperjam unveils the enormous volume of paper that is consumed in daily life. Without regard to environmental implications, our culture has adopted a reckless attitude toward printing and copying. By using an ordinary material such as office paper in an extraordinary way, we hope to inspire others to reconsider what is popularly believed to be waste. Today's consumptive lifestyles are not a sustainable means of living on this planet. Something needs to change. Despite the availability and affordability of printing, can we really afford to print such excessive amounts of paper?
