23 November - 21 December 2019
Otto August is a 14 year old origamist from Western Springs College. He became interested in paper-folding in 2017 and has since then been expanding a repetoire of increasingly complex forms. He is particularly interested in Kusadama and Tessellation forms, some of which take up to 15 hours to make. Otto finds origami a compelling challenge while at the same time relaxing. He collects paper from a variety of sources, some is bought online from specialist suppliers, some are gifts from family, others he finds closer to home at Studio Art Supplies and Daiso. The larger tessellations provide the largest challenge. Sources of interesting A2 and A1 size paper are very hard to come by.
