We are students of the northern city of the Komi Republic Syktyvkar - Svetlana, Yulia and Victoria. Our project is about paper recycling. It was not the paper recycling process itself that was important to us, but communication and spending time together. Old books, magazines,paper - an affordable material that does not require expensive investments.
At first, we went and were inspired by the nature of Komi, its places and sounds, and its culture. Northern nature is really a real aesthetic, it is minimalistic, and there is a great value in this minimal amount of things in nature. The North is a state of mind, and when we are alone with nature, we rest our minds.
