PAPER AS A MATERIAL

Paper is light, translucent or thick, concealing. It has a strong sense of material. The sound of a paper can be light, quiet or crispy and jingling. How it moves in the wind is dependent on its weight. The surface and the material's sensation are important to me, the sensuality in everything.
