Dallas Price’s senior project at Longwood University incorporates the fragility of handmade paper with untold stories of immigrants journeying into the United States. She works with Kozo to create casted water bottle forms that replicate the disposables found in the desert along these traveler’s paths. The bottle-like forms contain the personal story of an immigrant’s difficult trek and pursuit of the idealized American dream. Price navigates this heavy topic of immigration with great with sensitivity and respect, placing the emphasis on the individual rather than portraying immigration as a threat. Dallas Price presented this work at the 2015 FDH conference at eh Banff Center. She currently assists her professor, Kerri Cushman in papermaking.
