her passion for paper

I liked paper a lot and different cardboards and I would tear them to pieces and whatever came out would be pictures and I would make little worlds.

And once, says Björk, she spent a whole day making one of these paper worlds, a huge, special paper world.

I’d fallen in love with this girl in school, I was six, and I took it to her. And I’d never talked to her before. She kind ot rolled it apart and it was just a lot ot torn pieces of paper with nothing written on them. I just suddeniy realised it wasn’t that brilliant, just rubbish really. She just laughed really hard and threw it in the dustbin. Björk laughs. It’s a sad story.
