A Paper Tale

PRESENTED ON JUL 07, 2015

"When the eyes temporarily refuse to collaborate with the brain, it usually causes a beautiful paradox."

BY CHARLENE ASATO
@ VOL 19 ON DEC 13, 2013

Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.
