Links Project

On AMP’s Links projects, 50 to 75 communities across the country will receive eight-foot-long sculptures out of recycled paper pulp – abstract forms resembling links on a chain. The communities will decorate the links and return them to the studio; the links will become an element over 400 feet long weaving through the finished mural. The inspiration for the project is environmentalist and AMP advisor Paul Hawken’s recent book Blessed Unrest, in which he argues that social justice and environmental preservation both depend on linking the efforts of diverse small communities across the country.

Keiding Industries donated the links, for which they had to make a special mold according to Ellen’s design – the largest ever mold for a recycled paper-pulp object.
