Handmade paper, steel
2 x 15 x 19 in.
This work is one practice of HOU Wenyi's serial attempts to apply organic matters -- floral or faunal -- onto a piece of her handmade paper. By infusing a paper with traces of "life", HOU Wenyi wishes to give the paper a life of its own; if not at all, at least lend it some organic traces.
