"Korean Travel Log - A Pop-Up Sketchbook", an accordion-fold artist book project with pop-up elements featuring images from travels in South Korea.
A three week trip is chronologically edited and condensed allowing the viewer to wander through a version of these travel memories. Through a variety of pop-up paper mechanisms a level of dimensionality is re-introduced into the visual travelogue.
The design of the accordion fold mimics the original size, color, and page count of the original sketchbook. Culturally specific textures and colors are reflected through the addition of collage elements such as hanji —traditional Korean mulberry paper, washi tape, string, and stamping ink.
