Origami Artists Who Take Things To The Extreme

Keith Lam’s Shrinking Art


New media artist Keith Lam created an origami structure that shrinks from your touch by using kinetic energy. The reactive work is a sea star-like kinetic sculpture made with dozens of geometric origami parts that can be triggered by human touch. Lam’s inspiration is drawn from the vision he maintains that all art is alive. He explains his mission, saying, “By creating a conversation between men and objects, we hope the viewer can use a different way of thinking about life’s origin and its various forms, as well as to show a more fleshy and warm side of new media art.”
