Join origami experts from the MIT Origami Club and members of the Institute for Infinitely Small Things to make origami creations out of the Economic Stimulus Package. Our goal is to turn the 600-page package into beautiful origami creations which we will then proceed to sell in order to stimulate the economy.
This event is free and open to the public. No origami experience necessary as a 12-year-old origami expert will be teaching us all what to do.
The Institute for Infinitely Small Things conducts creative, participatory research that aims to temporarily transform public spaces dominated by corporate and political agendas. Using performance and conversation, we investigate social and political “tiny things”. These have included corporate ads, street names, and post-9/11 security terminology. The Institute markets dissent through its research reports in the form of maps, books and videos. This interdisciplinary group has a varied and open membership.
