Giant Paper Boat Sails on the Thames
Have you ever imagined making a life-size paper boat to be able to sail on it? Well, conceptual artist Frank Bolter has made his dream come true: he’s folded an 18ft-long origami vessel with the help of a group of people, and the boat sailed on the River Thames in London, England.
Notes about the project (from MailOnline):
But yesterday my endeavours were on a different scale as I helped 40-year-old Frank to cart the three rolls of paper that would make his latest 18ft-long vessel from a hire van to the quayside in St Katherine Docks near Tower Bridge in London.
Together with a curious gaggle of other people, we rolled them out and watched him seal them together with a heat gun. We picked up loose ends and laboriously folded them as he stood on the dock armed with nothing more than a tiny scrap of paper with which he practised each fold before telling us what to do.
