“Multifaceted” is a one page artist book made by using suminagashi techniques. As we move forward seeking our “New Normal”, we are faced with the challenges to identify our roles in society. This work is an attempt to display how multifaceted the role of a human being can be. With some instances of overlapping and some total disconnections of pattern, this piece is a glimpse into the crisis of identity and how our identity can be altered through perception.
