Exhibition ORILAND Charles B. Wang Center, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, USA, August 1 - 8, 2007
"A mind-blowing exhibition by Yuri and Katrin Shumakov features Origami clowns and goblins, beautiful flower arrangements (Oribana) and sprawling medival castles. This exhibition is a visual feast of amazing creativity, artistry and talent."
Setting up of the whole Oriland exhibition took about a week. It was quite a work, because thousands of paper pieces need to be connected very gently and precisely.
All installation work is done: Oriland Kingdoms are full of origami life and Sailing Ships plow through the water of Oriland Sea. Well, Oriland is ready to meet spectators - children and adults alike.
Oriland is open! Visitors filled up the exhibition and everyone was smiling :) Children, adults and whole families came to see What Origami Can Be! From Exhibition Guestbook: "This is really beautiful work! We have never seen such works of origami before. Absolutely amazing!”; “WOW! Our three children loved it, and so did we!"
Many visitors, entering to the exhibition room, stood still, trying to capture the whole image of Oriland and then walked around to watch every spot particularly From Exhibition Guestbook: "I never could have imagined that such wonderful and detailed things could be made by just folding paper! Amazing work!"
Oriland exhibition has lots and lots details to observe, so visitors usually returned to certain places again and again to notice something new every time. From Exhibition Guestbook: “Wow! It’s the coolest origami things I ever saw in my life!!!”
Oriland is huge, colorful and high-detailed origami world. Are you ready to a virtual tour around the Oriland exhibition? So, let’s get started! The first Kingdom, we’ll be visiting, is SunCity.
