Alessandra Lamio is one of Italy’s most creative folders, having started origami as a child this developed in college. At medical school she came across origami again and its use in therapy. Since 2014 she as been a full-time Origami artist. Her work involves organising exhibitions, running workshops, training teachers, and also creating models for commissions.
She is an active member of the Italian Origami Society (CDO) and was a member of the scientific committee at the three Italian conventions, including the forthcoming Didactics conference, that will focus on teaching origami. Together with Alessandro Beber, she runs “Mountain Folding”, a summer residential convention focused on Origami creativity. In 2016, she organized and curated the exhibition “Mujeres de Papel”, exploring the role of women in the origami scene. It was first exhibited at the EMOZ origami museum in Zaragoza.
She has exhibited her works in origami art exhibitions in Italy, Spain, Taiwan and USA. Her work explores various genres, with a particular focus on tessellations, geometric and figurative models. Most of her geometric works were invented by playing with geometry and patterns. Designed instinctively, they often have internal tension that make them challenging but most of all fun.
Since then, he explored and studied techniques, theories and mathematics of Origami. He has designed a number of original models in various styles, both representational and geometric. More recently he has worked mostly on single-sheet origami tessellations and geometric periodic patterns inspired by Islamic and optical arts.
In 2013 he published a booklet about his techniques and in 2017 he published a second book entitled "Origami New Worlds". He has been a guest at various international conventions including France (2014), JOAS in Japan (2014) and Origami USA (2017). In addition to attending conventions in Italy, Germany and Spain.
His origami has been included in several international exhibitions and galleries around the world. Currently, he works on designing, exhibiting and selling his own origami artworks, designing origami projects on request, teaching workshops and lecturing about origami techniques and mathematics.
Final details of convention administration arrangements, timings of meals, details of the provisional programme and other information will be sent to attendees shortly before the convention.
