"Personas Suck(Documents Enclosed)" Handmade Book

"You can't judge the book by its cover! I always drawn to the idea of a stereotype and a persona that effect how we perceive or judge an individual. Some people are as open-minded as an open book and some are very guarded and reserved but that doesn't mean they're not a fun person! This concept let me to create a graphic picture book that documents the moment in life of 10 individuals in a form of 10 security envelopes. The familiar patterns inside those typical security envelopes got transforms into 10 handmade graphic patterns that each pattern represents a documentation(as proofs) of an individual. The viewers can only see part of a face showing through the window of each envelope and the viewers are encouraged to interact to this piece by opening each envelope to discover if their reactions will meet the expectations!" – Tnop Wangsillapakun
