Kaleido-gami

Kaleido-gami is an interpretation of the motion of the kaleidoscope in book form. In this project, active participation is required from the viewer. Through an open progressive set of steps, each contributor build a customized paper sculpture booklet assembled. The result is that the colored fragments have been reordered in unexpected sequences and patterns due to the input.
