Having some trouble with a tutor at the moment. Every week he keeps asking me why I've chosen to use paper to illustrate the ideas and concepts. My reply has always been, firstly, because it's a book for a paper company, secondly because my style suits this medium and allows me to create a certain effect that I want. This medium is also tactile and hands on, with a craft emphasis which I love to produce work in. Apparently this explanation isn't enough and I need to come up with something that cannot be replicated by a computer.. although I would argue that the separation of the pieces of paper is enough for these pieces not to be replicated in photoshop. So it's stressing me out a lot at the moment and I need to have a big think about why paper. If anyone has any ideas please let me know, because I'm struggling a lot.
