Jim Jeffers, How To Fold A Bunny (two ways)
“How To Fold A Bunny (two ways)” is an obvious nod to Ray Johnson. In this project I have included two ways to make a bunny: with paper, by hand with origami, and with a 3-D file created by scanning the origami bunny with an iPhone. I am interested in both outcomes, as tools and resources allow them to manifest as sculptural objects, flaws and all, both hand-made and machined.
