Yay, we made it!
This is our lovely graduation exhibition. As a graphic design student, the most we made in the past 3 years are books. WE MAKE BOOKS. This is where the theme of the exhibtion came from. The show is presented as a reading room which exhibits the books we made for this exhibition.
We finished the set up on Thursday afternoon, I was so excited to show everyone our exhibition. However, I only had my compact digital camera in my hand and the room was quite dim... Sorry, for the poor quality photos...
I think my task for next week is to take proper picture of the show, so that I can show my parents and friends who cannot come to the show. I need a proper camera!!!!!! I am saving money for 5D at the moment... [working hard]
Exhibition Lamps
I made 6 lamps [screwed up one >_<] last week for the show.... It's a great fun to do paper folding, but not so fun to do 6 at once and all of them are half meter tall. Anyway, they look great now. Thanks to the person who invites the folding, you are amazing.

Decorative Books
Decorative Books are purely for decoration. Each book is folded from a piece of paper.They can be displayed in concertina forms, or cylinder forms by slotting the end to the beginning page.
The idea of decorative book is inspired by my random thought. I find some people buy encyclopedias, literatures and heavy text books to fill up and decorate the book shelves. They don't really read these books. So I decided to create a book which is purly for decoration.
