Run Away to the Mountain: Pop Up Book

  • The pop up book is made from paper and it folds away flat into a small box, which is also its stand. As the lid is flipped open, one discovers a tiny cabin nestled in a three-dimensional mountain forest. The project concept is to create an object that goes beyond aesthetics to evoke an experience into which one can escape briefly and be delighted. Belying the initial simplicity and solitude of forest imagery, are creatures hidden on the reverse side of the trees and artifacts buried under the mapped topography of the mountain. These contrasting elements invite the user to generate narrative.
