Prompt: Design a One-Minute Book to create a small field guide to contain the results of your observations and evoke your specific location in Washington Square Park.

This work was made when I first came to New York for a week. My professor assigned me this task to familiarize me with my university life and my surrounding environment. I made a one-minute book to present the scenes that impressed me the most in Washington Square Park. I was moved by the vibrancy and diversification of this cultural-sharing center. For my work, I painted the cover with acrylic paint and applied a pop-out design in my work.
