Standard Paper is an on-going project since 2011. It is a collection of hand-made papers with wild grasses. In this work, it reveals our modern society and capitalism have turned our relationship with earth into an indirect form. And through the process of collecting wild plants and hand crafts, it reconnects the relationship between the user, maker, and the land.
