Folding Paper – the book!
I’ve just received my copy of the catalogue accompanying the exhibition “Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami” and was pleased to find that it is more than just a catalogue of the show. It does have excellent photographs of the artwork and information about the artists but it also has essays by Meher McArthur and Robert Lang, the curator and consultant for the show respectively, about the history of origami and the connection of modern origami and science.This is a good book for the origami completist; good writing and a wonderful overview of some of the best origamists around today (and me too!) And no, I don’t get a commission from book sales, I just thought it was worth a mention.
And check out International Arts & Artists’ Flickrstream of the show.
A lot of origami luminaries involved. See how many you can name!
And hey – what’s this?
They look familiar…
And yes, the one on the right is simply titled “Mask” – I’m sorry but it’s tough coming up with names for these things.
