I saw smiling students at Shenkar College. They were going to Paul Jackson’s class on paper folding.
I followed and joined the fold.
Paul is a great teacher. I asked him what he does.
We talked about what he teaches, how folding is a metaphor for change. We talked about briefs, creativity and the importance of limited frameworks. Paul told me that I could make a paper goose in five minutes.
Our main conversation
We folded. And creased.
And folded some more.
Suddenly, a goosification.
The paper came to life with every twist and fold.
And to my sheer delighted, two geese took wing.
I asked Paul how he maintains his ebullience and excitement with the students. He told me.
Paul talks about geese, excitement and teaching.
