Here’s the genius in a sprout!




Here’s the genius in a sprout!


An exchange of points of view … and not only that, with cut-outs.
Workshop for the Rakuwakai Care System Medical Festival in Kyoto, Japan, 2004
in collaboration with psychologist Makoto Tsunoda


by and with
Clementina Mingozzi


For everyone from 8 years old on up

When we have a sheet of black paper in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other, whatever our cut-out ands up being will end up becoming, without using a pencil beforehand, will be a completely spontaneous silhouette that vibrates with surprising intensity.
That is why a simple, natural element – a sprout – can inspire us to begin cutting. Whether we end up choosing to copy its shape exactly, or whether we choose to use our imagination, we’ll be surprised by how it expresses our own way of looking at life.
The language of scissors does not allow for indecision or for going only half way … and sometimes that is exactly what we need!
