Ghost Deer

I haven’t posted in quite a while, mostly because I’ve been bodaciously busy traveling on assorted origami business. The latest (and current) trip was to set up my exhibition at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, TX. We set everything up Thursday, then came back Friday morning for some finishing touches. I’d folded three white-tailed deer from largish paper (the buck from a 1.5-meter square of hanji, does from somewhat smaller squares) and set them up in the picture window of the gallery, which looks out onto the gardens. Lo and behold, when the sun was just right, the three deer were joined outside by three somewhat ghostly visitors outside:

The exhibit runs through August 19, 2012. Like most deer, the ones outside are crepuscular, with best sighting conditions in the early morning. The inside deer are visible throughout the day!
