Folds

06Mar12

In our Da Vinci class, we studied geometry, symmetry, and folds this week. We also watched the PBS documentary film, “Between the Folds” about the art and making of origami paper folding.

In Grand Central Station, I saw a ball gown in a store front made from paper. It was beautiful, especially the rosettes.

This week our assignment was to make a sculpture from watercolor paper: Paint it, draw it and fold it. Also as a part of the assignment, we were invited to attend the John Chamberlain exhibit at the Guggenheim, and were asked to write down our reactions to his work on our folded paper sculpture.

I folded my paper with sharp edges, so that it stands up on the table. From the left angle, you can see the images painted on the inside of the center fold.
