Student Narrative

The form is not stagnate and can unravel or change as the viewer moves and interacts with the book. I drew inspiration from my interpretation of the inner mechanics of a tree as it grows with the seasons. As the viewer interacts with the book I hope they will create new shapes and possibilities to understand how we are connected to nature.
