Dualism in Storytelling

Finally here I introduce my new work developed through my MA project.

This is a book reflecting dualistic elements of tales such as good/evil, young/old or happy/unhappy. I also developed this book form using both side of paper from the view point of insider/outsider and known/unknown. Folded paper creates the notion of inside/outside and it suggests that a story can be changed by a different teller or a hidden story we never know.

I illustrated two stories (happy and unhappy ending) on a long strip of paper using front and back. As it was folded as pages you can read through in the both ways turning from right to left and from left to right. The point is that these two stories are connected each other through holes representing as windows and a mirror in terms of reversing inside and outside, and a different point of view.

You can see all pages here.
Also there is an e-book telling the unhappy ending story.
