Assignment 7: Standard Paper

In US, the letter size is a standard form for printing. People are printing an official document, a draft of text, a sample of design, a report, or just everything, on this 8½ × 11 inch paper. I was wondering about how exact this standardized subject is. For this assignment, I collected 500 sheets of letter-sized papers from studio mates in the room 502, CIT building. By collecting the papers people are using as a default in the office, which were subtly diverse in terms of texture and color, I focused on creating a literally standard ream of paper of the studio.
