As It Was

by Emily Fakaro

bachelor of fine arts, illustration major

Second Year | Graduation year: 2023

This project was made for a class assignment where an installation was to be constructed to music. I chose to make mushrooms and fungus entirely out of paper and thread and install them in the woods near my home. The music is "As It Was" by Hozier.
