The Imperfections by Sopi Su The inspiration came from the Japanese author Sei Shonagon, best known as the author of The Pillow Book. It is a book of observations about her life during the early 11 th century while she was serving in the court of the Empress. It includes her personal thoughts, interesting events and poetry. This project is based on my observations of daily life’s imperfections, and each words or sentences are laser-cut out of card.
