I like to research the relationship between the human body and a material. Cardboard is normally used to statically pack an object. I wanted to give another dimension to cardboard by using it to pack the human body. A body is not static at all, it moves all the time. This paper suit reacts to the body and moves along with it. The subtle movement of a finger is translated by the cardboard into a whole new movement. There is a tension between the body and the paper suit. The cardboard starts dancing along with you.
