Building Awareness: Orihon Booklet

This is an Orihon style folding booklet that visualizes the unique personality of a classmate that I interviewed and their relationship to nature. In our interview, my classmate spoke about nature being a release for her, allowing her to remove herself from reality and feel lighter. I wanted to demonstrate that shift in consciousness, particularly how nature can take the weight of reality off of you and be a temporary escape.

With this project, I had a lot of fun playing around with mixed media by creating watercolor textures to use as a background and digitizing hand drawn elements.
