The objective of this assignment was to stack paper in a fashion that would resemble the fruit of choice. I chose a coconut for its wood like texture and its ability to keep good for a while. The process involved stacking cut circles, wood gluing, and sanding. The biggest challenge was, to keep the original texture of stacked paper or to sand down to the approximate size, shape, and atrributes of the chosen coconut.

The process of my inventive paper stacking involved using the scraps from the cut circles of the coconut stacking. I wanted to somehow use the excess paper to create an object that would oppose the shape of the coconut yet still have an organic origin. Creating two organic shapes that are visually opposing yet made from the same paper and bezier curve was fascinating to me.
