Aerial Screw Paper Model Kit
was a special design project to commemorate the 2005 Light in Winter Festival
held in Ithaca, New York, in January. The continuing theme of the Light
in Winter Festivals is the "fusion of Art, Music and Science".
It was a great
honor to be chosen as the Festival Artist of the Year for 2005. I, therefore,
felt compelled to choose a paper model design that embodied the theme, the
spirit, and the originality that the festival represents.
With big name
performance artists (ex. The Kronos Quartet and The Paul Winter Consort) and
with leading scholars (ex. Frank Moon; the curator of Cornell University's
19 Century Releaux Machine Model Collection) on the program, I had no choice
but to call on Leonardo Da Vinci for my inspiration.
