For Folding Thoughts, I asked residents of Itoshima, Japan, to fold a pattern piece of traditional Japanese paper clothing (kamiko) in such a way that it would fit into an octagon-shaped vessel that I had given them. Carbon paper traced their movements—creating an imprint of each action. Displayed together, the variations in folding techniques and different approaches to the exercise created a communal trace, a pattern of thoughts.
Part II of Folding Thougts takes place in the Netherlands. Both Part I and Part II will be presented with a publication and printed handkerchiefs in September 2019 at the LLOYD Hotel in Amsterdam.
Part II is generously supported by Stichting Stokroos.
