About the Project
Haim created the Collective Paper Aesthetics program as a way to inspire collaboration and exploration in large groups through art. Using principles of design and engineering, Haim has created a project where room-sized installations can be created out of various three-dimensional paper forms. Community members will be able to come in to the Art Center during designated times to get a short lesson on creating the components, and begin constructing the pieces. When it comes time for the exhibit to be installed, the exhibitions curator and a team of volunteers will erect a free-form structure from the pieces created during the months preceding the installation. The installation can be continually added to by community members throughout the exhibit. Walk in and add a piece.
