This subtle piece has been created at Dieu Donné in New York City, a non-profit studio for handmade paper art.

DD2.15 is handmade acaba paper, which is a very thin and delicate paper.

Feinberg's original intention was to make paper to paint on, but then changed her mind after seeing the dried and pressed pieces. During the papermaking process it is difficult to know ahead of time what the final results will look like.

Seeing those results, she embraced the accidents, markings, and textures as needing nothing more than to be assembled.
