PaperBridge: A Site Specific Installation Made Entirely from Sheets of Bright Red Paper

Commissioned by Lakes Culture as part of its Lakes Ignite 2015 programme, "Paperbridge", is a site-specific landscape installation made of 22,000 sheets of red paper by environmental artist Steve Messam. Located over a stream in the Lake District of England, the bridge was built without glue, bolts or any other fixings and instead relies on authentic architectural principles used in the dry-stone walls and the original packhorse bridges that dot the Lake District to hold it up. The temporary structure, which was created using paper specially made by James Cropper, will be open to the public for 10 days from 8 May and all the paper used will then be returned to the paper mill for recycling.
