When a writer is dissatisfied with a manuscript, he or she may crumple writing paper up then throw it away. Considering a crumpling action, two meanings could be revealed. One is the negation of value or substance, while the other is hiding perspectives. A writer crumples up paper as a negative meaning. At that instant, flat surfaced writing paper is transformed into a three-dimensional structure and the texts on the paper are mixed, hiding its original meaning.
