As for representing animals, a form associated with the outside world, it enables one to first direct the gaze towards the three-dimensional space of the picture. Then, once a mental connection is made with the medium, the attention is drawn back to the surface of the paper and to our own material space. The final piece is both a photograph and a sculptural object where folds in the picture blend with the real folds, thus blurring the line between image and matter

As artist Marc Fichou previous works, his intention here is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent, thus creating a visual link between past and present. This concept naturally led him towards origami because of the reversible character of its folding process: each can be unfolded back to its creases.
In his series, the sheet of paper contains both the photographic and the material memories of its past origami form. Origami and paper are one and the same thing at two different times, in two different spaces and in two different shapes.
