A Personal Perspective: An Attempt at Innovation and Inventiveness
This slide lecture will portray a chronological evolution of Joan Michaels Paque’s creative output with emphasis on her most recent series of complex pleat folds and tessellations.

Her research, development and experimentation has resulted in a series of unique sculptural kinetic books that expand the definition of what a book is or can be.


Creative Journey: 3D Paper Arts (Books, Boxes and More)

This hands-on Paper Arts course includes both traditional and innovative building and binding techniques. Among the methods introduced are sewn, woven, interlocking, pop-up, origami and kinetic structures. The use of both conventional and unorthodox materials is illustrated along with creative concepts, ideas and applications. Architectural and engineering principles are explored along with expedient and simplified methods of working. Participants will make prototypes and maquette studies that are applicable in 2D and 3D for later adaptation into media, material and technique of choice. Emphasis is on kinetic structures. Instructor’s non-intimidating, enjoyable methods encourage an empirical, problem-solving approach and individual style development.

Joan Michaels Paque includes the results of her research, development and experimentation with complex pleat and twist folds and tessellations that resulted in a series of unique sculptural kinetic books. Course content, for both the serious and the curious, is also applicable in the fine and graphic arts, sculpture and in teaching.
