'An Inordinate Fondness For Beetles': A catalogue of the Collections of the British Papirocoleoptera Society.
A project celebrating the different properties and qualities of paper stocks in the form of a catalogue of the collections of the fictional British Papirocoleoptera Society. Origami Beetles made from different forms of paper, such as bible leaves, fast food chip wrap and antiquarian book endpapers, are categorised and discussed in the manner of scientific journal documenting biological specimens. The project was inspired by the noted evolutionary biologist J.B.S. Haldane’s assertion that if God the creator existed, he must have “an inordinate fondness for beetles” given the proliferation of coleoptera species. Papirocoleoptera explores the joy of creation through paper by documenting paper beetles as if they were living things.
