We mock, ridicule, transform our masks as we come upon others.
What lies beneath is just illusion.”

For his artist book project, The art of folding, for young and old, Luca Trevisani draws inspiration from a Chinese book of origami and paper folding, found in New York. His work consisted in scanning the entire book and then intervene on the new form of the book as scans. The result is a project in which old and new convey together in a perfect equilibrium and where the work of Trevisani is integrated with the book on origami’s. The reader interacts with the work carefully looking at the pages in an attempt of finding the artist’s intrusions.
