How do we exist in the world? Is it through blending it? Perhaps it is through the mental metamorphosis that exists inside each person. There is a shift that takes place, sometimes externally and sometimes internally. Paper embodies the dualities and qualities of shape-shifting. Like the trickster in folklore, shapeshifting is how I often feel—shifting from being seen as a white woman to reuniting with my family where I can create a shared mixed space with my biracial siblings. In stories, the trickster's characteristics deviate and are considered rule breakers. Because of this, tricksters defy dualities, often tugging on two opposites simultaneously, and in my case, my two different cultures. Similarly, paper carries characteristics that are set to contradict itself as well. Where there is structure, there is also softness; where there is strength, fragility is present too.
