”Well, how did I get here?”

The idea is to expand the materiality of paper with the limitations of only cutting and folding to experiment the possibilities of creating playful geometric dimensions from a single archival paper.

On the surface, it’s all the same but there’s this feeling of certain motion regardless of being it same as it ever was.

”And you may ask yourself, How do I work this?”
Of course, fusing the principles of Paper Engineering into different art forms as I move forward. I’m coming to a point where I’m starting to understand the true nature of paper. Definitely excited to learn more, experiment, and execute concepts from my unidentified list and unanswered questions.

Paper is definitely not the most forgiving medium out there. Every decision from scoring, folding, or cutting, will always leave a mark. Interacting with paper is becoming a closer reflection of the way I hope and choose to live.

The process in creating SAME AS IT EVER WAS required careful dissection of paper, patience, patience, and patience.

"And you may ask yourself, Am I right, am I wrong?"
"And you may say to yourself, My God, what have I done?"

"SAME AS IT EVER WAS" is inspired by my all-time favorite song, Once In A Lifetime by Talking Heads. And yes, I try to dance like David Bryne every time I’m given an opportunity to do so.
Love u David Byrne!
