There is no reason to this thread, other than to discuss why we do what we do with paper.
I guess the reason I started this is because I am wondering what you peeps thoughts are on the matter.
I, for one, love origami - a love born from the ability to make beautiful 3D models out of single sheet of paper. I am no master at it, but for me its the unfolding of the model back in to a single '2D' piece of paper that really flicks my switch. The knowledge that what I build is fundamentally so simple as a piece of paper is the beauty for me, and forms my most basic principles of my hobby.
So I don't get involved with cutting, tearing and gluing. Wet folding to me is a 'grey area' which I avoid.
I love what some of you guys/gals do with your cutting and gluing, you achieve shapes and patterns that I could only aspire to. I guess my question to you all is why?
For me, my reply to this is from Banksy in 'Exit through the gift shop' - "everyone should do a bit of art everyday". If people ask me that's what I say. What do you reply (or do you hide it like a filthy secret)?
