Questions Of Otherness & Being - The Answers >

"We hold these truths to be self-evident..."

+ 01) why join the origamism, or are you surprised to find yourself listed?

- and sailing on effort whole related for origami or participation substances.
- Multiple-Folding space appeals- I found I was...
- the creation of or_/traumatika
- always in labour at hard places
- because the chaos of origami represents the bigger chaos that is The Chaos.
- no
- I always wanted to be part of the origamism, since I heard about in the middle of the nineties.
- I think I can contribute with some wisdoms(?) about life, art, sound, water, salt, bread. And so on. And I also want to work with other origamist (a big orgy is always nice)
- utmostly surprised
- i want to take all skinhead isolationist bedroom composers down with me, or up, dependent of the outcome
- after the origamism became something way out of my control, i really felt like re-joining, and YES the most surprisesest guy in this whole game is me
- to spread the psychosis
- Because physical isolation is okay if you are part of something bigger.
- I joined because it seems to me this OR thing was this huge noncorporeal entity that made me horny and i wanted to penetrate it. It sounded like something fun i could relate to, and in general struck some cords within some parts of this local organism behind this keyboard here. Also I got to play my first live gigs (if you don't count the myriads of accordeon concerts i did as a kid and one concert at an attic at some eat the rich festival) at the magnificent Klubb Kanin (which I now help arrange pretty regulary). To put it short; I joined because it just made sense!
- I do origami, and i thought it only right that the Origami should get some origami going on.
- It was meant to be. Fate.
- stikki thinking. we were surprised the first time & we still are. we like iniatives.
- I joined because I liked the idea of an independent music / art scene, it was like joining something like dada, but too late!
- To spite my hermetic nature.
- I was part of the Neuborg / Neubauten subunit created by Mr Slegg.
- I'm not surprised...and I think once you have been involved in the Origami you are always a member of Origami.
- Very surprised, even though I probably joined it myself. But when I think of it I really enjoy joining almost everything joinable by my very own standards...which are equal...to joining...an organism.
- some years ago, when i met the origamis I was really surprised by the concept around but firstly for the expression, i listened some music, some colours, some word... and i went very estimulated with these. since some years also being intersted in the open platforms, and here i met two friends working in his own. i respect origami republika 'cause i find some common cultural interests, very interesting works, really fresh and free, and with true ecleticism. and an interesting base coordination between a lot of points of the globe...
