folding papers

The “folding paper” series revolves around the concept of human struggle and creative transformation.

The main reason I choose to work with different types of materials (bronze, wood, marble, stainless steel, concrete) in this series is to represent the different life struggles. All of the materials are very dense, but I want to make them appear light, even ethereal, like paper, as a metaphor for the struggle to transform through growth and evolution.
