Synapse Lecture: Eric Gjerde

September 13, 2018, 6:30 pm

Held in the Charles and Jane Lehner Auditorium

When asked by his parents what he wanted to be when he grew up, five-year-old Gjerde replied, “a paperologist.” Throughout his childhood and adolescence, he enjoyed paper crafts and origami. As an adult, Gjerde discovered a deeper appreciation for the beauty of origami by exploring and researching new areas of folding. He is currently focused on the development of new biological paper processes and the geometry of origami tessellations.

Free and open to all
