Oragami is a very interesting art-form. In particular, I am interested in the idea of transformation. Taking what is essentially a linear plane and modifying it into another plane of existence. Theoretically, the artist must become one with the paper, view it, see it, feel it become something else. The post-modernist view: What can you do with one fold? This could be a very moving area of study for not only sculpture, but sketch. Whenever I think of oragami I think back to something one of my favorite art professors told me.
"Anything you can make with paper you can make with metal"-Deanna Skedel
This is something I'd like to explore once again.
I was at one time enamored with working with paper. I used it because it was nearby and I had to do something to keep my hands and mind occupied. I would work with it almost as if I were in a trance. Methodically, neurotically, impulsively.
