9 – 5

This is a book of hand-cut images. The work is of 2 halves, one half of 20 pages; the second half of 3 miniature books (6/7 pages each), nesting inside the book cover.
As you turn the pages, you see the shapes and colours of the tree transforming through the seasons. The miniature books illustrate smaller transformations of the tree at different speeds and times.
Throughout this work, I wished to communicate the repetitions, beauty, the play and the struggles of life, not simply of the tree, but of any life.
