548: Making Your Dollar Go Further

Posted by wonko on October 23, 2016 in amphibian, fish, paper |

My son and his partner (Hi Matt and Alix!) came back from a recent trip to Canada and the US and had some greenbacks left over in their wallet. They are paper, you can fold them, there is a whole branch of Origami that does this intensively, led by artists like Won Park.

There is a branch of Origami that I have not explored because I live in Australia and our bank notes are no longer paper, they are plastic: Moneygami, an exacting discipline that uses USD paper notes, a particular format where all notes are the same size and still made of paper is fascinating for a […]
