The material, from which the objects were made for eventual installing in the Grand Rue Ghetto Biennial area, became itself a forum within which to discuss post-earthquake Port-au-Prince social and economic histories. Using paper briquettes donated by the startup ecological solutions company called El Fuego del Sol, handmade paper was pulled at the Biennial site, during workshops at ENARTS and on street corners interacting with red zone audiences. The president of the El Fuego del Sol Company, Kevin Adair, also donated shredded paper from the foreign embassies, the UN, as well as the Food Relief Organizations and other global businesses present in Haiti at the moment. Added to the paper pulp mix were newspapers with current headlines and carefully hand calligraphed pages from a French school journal. Prints were pulled from rubble found around prominent historical sites like the Cathedral and the Palace. And ink was made from local materials found in the Port-au-Prince ghetto including voodoo powder, car fluid and coal. All made up an interesting mixture of spiritual, cultural, industrial, historical and ecological meaning.
