Pappírsbrot – Enjoying origami

Sigurborg and Anna Snædís admiring Dave Brill’s “Sunken Star”

ARKIRNAR fjórar sem mættu á námskeið hjá origami-listamönnunum Dave og Assia Brill  í Menningarmiðstöðinni Gerðubergi um síðustu helgi verða nú að játa á sig æði mörg brot.

Kennararnir voru engir aukvisar í faginu: þau hjónin hafa stundað origami listina í árafjöld, með ótal sýningar og viðurkenningar að baki.

Assia Brill folding paper at Gerðuberg in January 2013

Teachers Dave and Assia Brill were admirably patient and thorough in their instructions as they lectured us in basic origami folding. Whether our origami-studies come in handy for this next CON-TEXT exhibition or not, we will undoubtedly make use of it in our future book art.
