"Fade to Green" by Travis L. Martin

Title: “Fade to Green”
Artist: Travis L. Martin
Medium: One Battle Dress Uniform cut to shape with remainder pulped to create paper
Size: 34″ X 35″
Notes: “As part of a Veterans Studies course I was teaching in fall 2012 I brought the “Combat Paper” project, led by Drew Cameron, to campus for three days of papermaking workshops. I chose to make this piece out of an old BDU top, fading the uniform gradually into paper as a way of commenting on the tentative nature of memory.”
