Points of jinsei

 

I was given a story written by Yuko Okabe about a fictional family tradition - sixteen-pointed stars are folded for each child born into the Ube family, one point each year. Ube children are difficult to raise. By the time the star is completed, the child has grown into a kinder and more respectful person. Working from this story, I made a double-sided poster advertising a museum exhibit for a collection of the completed stars.
