Sarada Rauch





The crowd gathers and stands around in the gallery. The gallery floor is covered in thick gray paper, wall to wall. The crowd is standing on top of it. The doors are closed. I start lift one side of the paper floor and fold it onto itself, and then grab another side and fold that onto itself. The folding of the paper makes the crowd have to move out of the way, and I herd them as I fold, around the gallery room.  I keep folding the paper, which is bright pink on the bottom of it. I am using an origami folding pattern I designed to fold into a snail shell. I complete the origami snail shell made from the gallery floor, put on top of me and walk out the door, out of the gallery, and to my hotel room.
