2 LILY


A tunnel book about growth. Pages were handcut on a variety of weights and colors. Each individual page can be removed and is attached by respective tabs and slots. A translucent piece of pink plastic was resourced from scrapped packaging for the last page to allow for a light effect to diffuse from the back.

3 REFRACT


A whimsical book that uses recycled scraps to build the effect of light. The book can be experienced in any direction or orientation, as compositions and collages vary on each page.
