The idea to combine drawing and sculpture is based in an experience most people can understand: pop-up books. It is my belief that a pop-up book can send a different message than a regular illustrated children’s book – a larger and stronger message. At least one journal article details the effectiveness of pop-ups at increasing the engagement of young readers. I hope and belief that this engagement and increased density of information holds when combining two and three dimensional work in ways other that pop-up books.
