"r,p,s" or "Rock, Paper, Scissors".

Paperweight created for "The Paperweight Show" at Fisher Parrish Gallery, April 14th - June 14th, 2017.

Started with the idea to illustrate the word Paperweight and trying to give "weight" to paper. That led me to the game of "Roshambó" or more commonly known as Rock, Paper, Scissors where the paper is more powerful than a rock giving it more "weight" and also because the paper is on top of a rock, the paper becomes “heavy”.
