Student Narrative

This book documents the growth of a sunflower through various styles that is unfamiliar to me. The sunflower is a personal object that inspired me through some of my toughest times. I wanted this book to be an experimental piece incorporating both Chinese and American influences on me. I utilized traditional Chinese binding method as well as traditional Chinese characters alongside English as my attempt to integrate the two cultures.
