Reason for Award

Within a peaceful scene, where the sound of a boiling kettle intermingles with that of a child practicing piano, something unusual is unfolding. Here is depicted the organic atmosphere of daily life, within which a geometrical and inorganic piece of white paper is presented as a protagonist; as time goes by, it begins to accrue organic expressions. It begins as a piece of normal white paper on a table; but from this casual prelude, develops unexpected movement. This technique of pursuing one particular theme and gradually expanding it with unexpected forms of expression is supported by a carefully written scenario and skilled composition. It combines Japanese origami culture and paper cut art effectively, resulting in an original work of high quality.
