The Agony of the Frog Prince.
The Agony of the Frog Prince, made for an exhibition in Tokyo using Japanese papers and a number of found objects. The work revolves around the concept of a fairy tale in which a frog turns in to a prince, we all are aware of this sort of thing I am sure. But, what if the frog and the princes never met.... what if he was unable to find her golden ball.... what if he was not the dinner guest but dinner ?
The book is a single, open page book. More an assemblage in book form. This form of book allows the reader to explore the three dimensional quality of the individual pieces and the whole.
