Lost in the Woods is a narrative that is inspired by the mythology of the Nine Tailed Fox which has roots in Korean, Japanese and Chinese folklore.
With gaining its ninth tail, the fox is able to be omnipresent and has infinite wisdom. I related this to the existence of the internet and social media, being able to be omnipresent in any moment in time by going online. It is a metaphor for the immediate technology we possess now.
Keeping that concept in mind, I created the story of a fox running wild in the woods and when it eventually comes to a river, it jumps in, rising as a female. It was made to fit an accordian-fold book as I felt that the format of an expanding story would push the story further. Each panel told a part of the story, and they all connected with the edges.
Lost in the Woods stemmed from the folktales of fox spirits in Japanese, Korean and Chinese mythology. Every A3 panel connected to the next and would come a full circle when placed together.
