Johnny Adimando at 17 Cox

February 20, 2012

This winter, Montserrat’s printmaking faculty member and artist Johnny Adimando has attempted and failed at the impossible: to reach the moon through conventional methods of paper folding and printmaking. At its apogee the Moon is about 406700 km from the Earth, while a single sheet of paper is about 0.01 cm high. It would take approximately 1,520,640,000 stacked pieces of paper to reach the Moon or a single sheet of paper folded on itself 42 times could reach the Moon’s surface.

Please join Johnny for an artist talk in the newly renovated 17 Cox Gallery!
