Origami or Lesson
on Paper

Six lessons introduce the reader to a ‘vocabulary’ of paper. This idea is two-fold: firstly it should give you an insight to the world of paper stocks and their qualities, through the practice of Origami folding, and writing, which represents two of many ways one can interact with paper and discover its characteristics and properties.

Secondly, over the course of the lessons, one’s sensitivity to paper should grow to a point where you will be able to recognize a paper’s qualities and judge its abilities.

This experiment was done on the occasion of a class held by Will Holder in which the students were asked to learn a ‘language’ and then in turn teach it to Will.
