Re-Purposed SnowFlakes

Here are some paper snowflakes that people made out of declassified documents. Not-happy documents about some pretty terrible things, but they were re-purposed to make beautiful snowflakes – turning something ugly into something beautiful. Similar to the Declassified Document Peace Art and the Peace Paper Project.

Many people attempt to overcome trauma and past abuses through art; by trying to re-claim and re-purpose their experiences, and representations of their experiences. Many of us who work closely with these issues also find it healing and helpful to re-purpose the dark and make it into something light…

See the actual documents, part of the Torture Archive.
