I am looking at how, in the folded structure, I can strengthen paper - especially if I want to make a hung book. It is interesting to note that whereas I need to fold paper to safely hang it, when I encapsulate paper within polyester pockets and heat laminate it, I can hang a single skin. I also found that I could create translucent textural effects by crumpling tissue and encapsulating it . In Sea Shift an organic inner layer is trapped within a plastic 'shell', which protects the fragile paper layer. This plastic shell is deceptively delicate, fragile, even beautiful, despite its mundane origin.
