This project was inspired by the form of the chinese lantern. The choice of the material was inspired by the traditional japanese lantern. Organic forms are often appeared In many of my projects. In this project i used a number of flat pieces of thin wood to create a 3D organic formation.
Used japanese styled leaf paper on two sides to let the light shine through.
Used 8 pieces of plexy glass in side. When the light shines through the plexy glass, the paper pattern on each plexy glass stacks up and show the layers of a traditional image of a japanese woman.
