As work continues on Anecdotes, a separate series has emerged in relationship to experimental origami. By taking one-inch thick pieces of white plain paper and manipulating them into forms in an impromptu manner, I am making a comment on the tradition of origami practice relative to human memory. The act of creating origami is traditionally a highly precise and time-intensive process based on pre-visualized results achieved through practice and repetition. By taking an intuitive approach to manipulating paper, I seek to uncover a stream of consciousness in response to paper materials as opposed to known, exacting results. The origami fish in a sea of rust were created in collaboration with Justin Barfield in response to growing environmental concerns over the condition of the American Gulf coastline.
