Germinate, 2013,  handmade abaca and flax paper, 2" x 18" x 0.5"

Germinate grew out of a contemplation on metaphors for storytelling and communication. Inspired by
the notion of a story unfurling as a new sprout, of an author’s ideas being disseminated as seeds that
take root in the minds of readers, I sought to create a literal, physical translation of this imagery. The
organic qualities of handmade paper make it an ideal material to embody these natural processes.ACA
