Origami Installation


Artist and Facilitator: George Dempsey Flannagan

The focus for this project was on local heritage and the historical contribution to astronomy by William Parsons - 3rd Earl of Rosse and his discovery’s influence on the art world, in particular Vincent Van Gogh and his creation of ‘The Starry Night’. Through a modern-day interpretation students created an installation using the medium of Origami Paper Craft to depict The Whirlpool Nebula reflecting inspiration from both Parsons & Van Gogh.
