Paper Penguins

Back in 1999, Cardiff-based artist and designer Guy Wooles embarked his mission to create paper penguins to send around the world, and 11 years on, his determination to colonise the world with the little beasties is ramping up a notch.

Wooles says, ‘The strongest issue seems to be one of communication. Each penguin is made of text and stories; each penguin is sent by post; each penguin is received by another person; the other person contacts me and a dialogue is established.’

Wooles has launched a new website detailing the project here
